Paranoia among Georgian opposition

2010-03-24 09:35

5639.jpegGeorgian politicians have a unique capacity of accusing each other of all mortal sins taking out heaps of incriminating evidence and mutual accusations. That is why there is practically no chance to tell truth from falsehood. Presently Georgian opposition often calls Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili the Kremlin's protégé for losing Abkhazia and South Ossetia and throwing the country's big businesses into the hands of Russian investors. In the heat of the pre-election race Georgian politicians make even more daring assertions: parliamentary opposition believes that Georgia's government might pursue secret talks with Russian authorities on WTO accession.


It was Georgy Targamadze, a leader of the Christian Democratic party of the parliamentary minority who mentioned "conspiracy" at the parliament's plenary session. What makes him be suspicious? Christian democrats condemned Upper Lars checkpoint opening in view of the threat to Georgia because of the complicated situation in South Caucasus.

However the sides unsealed the route via Kazbegi with the help of mediators (Armenia, the interested party - I.P.) regardless of broken diplomatic relations between Russia and Georgia in the aftermath of August 2008 events. The opening caused suspicions of conspiracies between official Moscow and Tbilisi. It should be remarked though that the authorities regularly accuse the opposition of holding secret negotiations with Moscow and "stigmatize" anyone shaking hands with Putin...

But Christian Democrats are not part of the radical opposition that now and then disturbs authorities. No member of this party plans to come to Moscow for talks. Only Georgy Targamadze started his political career with Aslan Abashidze, former leader of Ajaria who had to flee the country after the Rose Revolution as a result of his disobedience to young revolutionists.

To Georgy Targamadze's credit he has never thrown stones or presented incriminating evidence on his ex patron. However the party he is heading (founded in 2008) was quick to gain political points and was equally quick to be labeled a "double agent". There is a version that Targamadze represents interests of Georgian Interior Ministry. According to another version the Christian Democratic Movement is Moscow's new "instrument".

As New Region wrote, according to analysts, it is not impossible that "Targamadze project" was launched by Georgian authorities deliberately in order to neutralize risks of more active Russian influence on Georgia's "domestic field". The purpose of the "scheme" was simple - to show a new virtual political brand to advantage and send possible inflows to "safe hands" with the simulative character of work.
