Alliance is suffering losses2010-06-01 23:57
The most principled human rights defender of Georgia is leaving Irakliy Alasania's team. The opposition's failure in the elections has totally disappointed Sozar Subari who has been enjoying the trust of a half of the country's population. The former ombudsman will continue struggling for justice in Georgia with one of the non-governmental organizations.
According to the Georgian media, immediately after the local elections in Georgia, former ombudsman Sozar Subari left the ranks of Alliance for Georgia. He explained that the decision was taken a month and a half ago when he refused to take the post of Chairman of Sakrebulo in Tbilisi. He just did not venture to leave so as not to cause any damage to the Alliance and the opposition in general.
The human rights defender tried to unite the opposition, conducting negotiations between all the political forces. He also gave up his own ambitions for the sake of a stronger candidate. However, his efforts were in vain. Neither Iralkiy Alasania, nor his block Alliance for Georgia managed to outplay the ruling United National Movement, although, according to preliminary data, they outran the Christian-Democratic party.
Alasania regarded Subari's behaviour as weakness. "Some people lose their belief in victory as soon as they come across the first obstacle, while the obstacles only make true fighters stronger. Me, personally, I have never been part of a guaranteed victory plan. Even in the most complicated circumstances I managed to win due to my own efforts and due to my associates' support and I am intended to go on that way. Sozar has made his choice", - the Alliance leader commented upon the recession of the human rights defender.
In his turn, Subari pointed out that "one should not fight for failure when there is a real chance to win". He was hinting at the non-negotiability of the Georgian oppositional leaders including Alasania.
In 2004, the parliament appointed Subari to the post of the human rights defender to its own harm; the post has been occupied by Subari for five years. In these years he managed to disclose the true nature of the Georgian democracy based upon the policemen's tough pressure on the opposition, the impunity of the murderers in the uniform and the readiness to break up the people's meetings.
Subari's reports damaged the image of the country in the reports made by the international human rights organizations. Besides, the ombudsman did not confine himself to criticism but demanded investigations and punishment of the guilty ones.
