Burdzhanadze’s power of consolidation2008-12-08 15:06
Following public disclosure of NATO Foreign Ministers' meeting results the leader of the newly established party "Democratic movement - united Georgia" Nino Burdzhanadze summoned a press conference where she stated that the acting government had lost confidence not only inside the country but beyond it calling all political forces for consolidation in order to hold early elections of the republic's president as soon as possible.
"Georgia's current authorities are unable to solve crucial tasks for the country, lead it out of the crisis and bring it to the objectives that are our main priorities, - Burdzhanadze pointed out. - We must do our best to reach coordination in the actions of all political forces. We must raise a question of the authorities' responsibility and come to fair democratic elections in order to change these authorities in a constitutional way".
The energy and determination of one of Georgia's brightest politicians are quite explainable. Following the problems with a MAP provision for accession to NATO it became clear that it was the fiasco of both Saakashvili's internal policy and the country's ambitions in the international arena.
"Inadequacy and irresponsibility of the authorities have cut off the perspective of joining the North Atlantic Alliance in the nearest future, - Burdzhanadze continued. - For some time past we have been actively trying to obtain a MAP and now Georgia's integration into NATO has come to a standstill and is postponed for an indefinite period".
Georgia's non parliamentary opposition was immediate to react to Burdzhanadze's appeal for consolidation of forces with a view to change the power in the country. One of the opposition leaders, the Secretary General of "Conservative Party of Georgia" Kakha Kukava noted in the interview with "Novosti-Gruzia":
"We are ready to joint actions with various political forces including Nino Burdzhanadze on general political issues as the terms of presidential and parliamentary elections, legislative modifications concerning elections, etc".
"Labour Party of Georgia" too backed the initiative but with some reservations. Its Secretary General Soso Shatberashvili stated:
"We are not against consolidated actions on this issue but only after Nino Burdzhanadze admits her guilt and confesses to all the crimes she has committed when she was in power". That is as the leader of Parliament.
