Assembly of Trust saying hello to Georgia’s special services

2010-11-08 19:24

9781.jpegNo matter what IRI opinion polls might claim, Georgian people have no trust in their authorities. Otherwise they would not invent a new non-governmental structure called "The Assembly of Trust". According to the initiators from Save Life movement, the assembly will consist of people trusted by practically all political and public organizations of the country. The only embarrassing thing is that the Assembly of Trust partially replicates All-People's Representative Assembly thus decreasing the latter's striking force in run-up to the big congress. Presumably, split in society plays in the hands of Georgian special services, now particularly active.


Georgia's civil society that, as they say, Russia lacks to be totally happy is developing very fast. Still it is impossible to acknowledge that the country's authorities are controlled. The reason for impotence is poor coordination between an ocean of NGOs and opposition parties.

For the past two years the non-system opposition has been trying to get united for a joint battle march on Mikheil Saakashvili's "court". As a result two blocs emerged. But that didn't help them win after all.

Now it's social activists that take the path of politicians. Representatives of intelligentsia, expert community and NGOs dissatisfied with the country leadership set up All-People's Representative Assembly conceived as a purely democratic body that will free Georgia from Mikheil Saakashvili, help reconcile with Abkhazia and Ossetia and define plans for the future.

It seems absolutely natural for the society to get united under the brand of All-People's Assembly. Still, as it turns out, not all pro-opposition civil activists like other members of this organization.

As was reported yesterday, the "Assembly of Trust", an alternative to the representative assembly is being created in Georgia. It means that general public, like the opposition, gets split in two blocs.

The idea of a "backup" was introduced by Yuri Vasagashvili's opposition movement Save Life (see photo). He is the father of Zurab Vasagashvili murdered at the time of the special operation in 2006 by the police that went far beyond authority opening fire on a car with three young men suspected of preparation for a robbery. However, the law-enforcement officers were not punished. In 2007 the case against them was closed for lack of evidence. Currently the case is examined in the Court of Strasbourg.
