Georgia puts hopes on overseas2009-10-08 17:55
The Georgian opposition, which is not inclined to give up the idea of changing the government, is again calling to united manifestations. The ambitious politicians are unable to overcome the state of permanent disagreement, conducting negotiations with Europe and the West and counting upon their assistance in an endless struggle against the regime.
Recently, leader of United Georgia Nino Burjanadze called upon all the oppositional forces of the country to build a united democratic front. She made her statement at a special briefing. According to Burjanadze, the core idea of the front is Georgia's liberation from the current authorities. As the United Georgia party leader pointed out, methods of struggle may be different.
However, no one wishes to join the "united front" so far. Leaders of the oppositional parties still prefer to take advantage of each other.
The main criers of the anti-Saakashvili slogans: Irakliy Alasania (Alliance for Georgia), Nino Burjanadze (Democratic Movement - United Georgia), Levan Gachechiladze (Defend Georgia), Salome Zurabishvili (Way of Georgia) and a dozen other oppositional leaders (the number of parties approaches twenty - I.P.) have not yet defined whether they are allies or opponents to each other.
So far, the oppositionists are acting as a united front only in their struggle for sympathy and favor of the European and western partners. Most Georgian experts are sure that Georgia's political future basically depends on support of the White House and European Union.
The oppositionists now say that they are going to concentrate their efforts on dealing with the international organizations.
Today, a meeting was held between Council of Europe Director General of Political Affairs Jean Louis Loran and the Georgian radicals.
As Internet portal Civil.Ge reports, Loran was asked to deal with the situation with political prisoners. According to the Georgian authorities, there are no such prisoners in the country.
The oppositionists say that after the spring protest actions, over one hundred political prisoners got behind bars.
"Naturally, we were talking about those political prisoners that were detained for taking active part in the April protest actions", - Nino Burjanadze stated after the meeting, having added that the oppositional leaders asked the Council of Europe spokesman to "perform monitoring" of these cases.
