One more spat in Saakashvili’s face2009-12-31 18:07
It's a system crisis Georgia is undergoing now as confirmed by total mistrust to officially recognized authorities that resulted in an initiative to invite the UN monitors to watch over spring elections. It seems the way to prosperity for this Caucasian state must go through Moscow. Local establishment starts to realize that. And despite irony of the official agitprop all this shows confusion and perplexity of the authorities.
Today is a doors open day at Tbilisi Marriott Hotel. As GHN reports representatives of various political forces are expected to support the Labor party of Georgia's initiative to invite UN monitors to control municipal elections.
A real slap on the face of the authorities, isn't it? However Saakashvili and Co must be used to such spats from his political opponents.
Just a short time ago his major political rival at the latest presidential election, now leader of opposition Defend Georgia movement Levan Gachechiladze stated he was ready to go to Russia if this does good to his country.
"If I spoke to Mikheil Saakashvili why not go and talk to Russian PM Vladimir Putin. I'm in favor of any dialogue that would be good for Georgia", - the oppositionist said. According to him Georgia has to contact with its neighbors to develop. "Without dialogue with Russia Georgia's territorial integrity won't be restored, neither will economy be developed", - Levan Gachechiladze emphasized in his interview with Kviris Palitra weekly.
According to him in spring the opposition will start a new protest wave. "The people are so exasperated that all things are possible. The society will offer an adequate response to falsification of local elections in spring", - Gachechiladze is quoted on Caucasian Knot. "We are gathering force for the last time. We have considered all mistakes. This will be the last protest wave - either for the opposition or for Saakashvili" - he stated.
The need for dialogue with Moscow is discussed by Georgian opposition figures still more often. Shalva Natelashvili, leader of the Labor Party, Teymuraz Shashiashvili and leader of the Whites have expressed their desire to go to the Russian capital. But it's only Zurab Nogaideli, Movement for Fair Georgia leader who has ventured four trips.
Activity of Georgia's ex Prime Minister was badly received by Georgia's current official leader. As GeorgiaTimes wrote earlier Saakashvili criticized Nogaideli for associations with Russian politicians. That's why Levan Gachechiladze's statement sounded like a real challenge to the power that be.
