Oppositional “Group of Eight” lapsing to infinity2011-06-08 20:18
Georgian "moderate" opposition's fruitless games with the authorities go on. Representatives of eight parties who have been insisting on the change of electoral environment for almost a year made another proposal to the country's government on the matter. However, it is simply ridiculous to speak of any elections in a situation when the whole country is sinking in the mire of totalitarianism.
Long confrontation between the oppositional "Group of Eight" and representatives of the ruling establishment of Georgia relating to the possible reformation of the electoral environment has made everyone tired, including the participants of the process. Perhaps, there should not be eight parties in the coalition: this figure turns into infinity when put horizontally and it appears this is the time period needed by the opponents of Saakashvili's regime to beg for the right of a dialogue. They have repeatedly tried to quit negotiations but, realizing they have got no serious tools to press on the Georgian state's government, they made another statement about the continuation of discussing the reform.
That's how it happened this time. The authorities' opponents produced another statement after a long silence, saying that "the government does not want a mutual compromise and is not going to follow the way of a compromise". At the same time, the oppositionists stressed the "special meaning" of the active position of the country's government "in the struggle for fair elections". Well, one is apt to treat the oppositionists' actions even more skeptically after such an appeal.
Are representatives of the "Group of Eight" really as naïve as to believe that the authorities will agree to communicate with them? The bloody breakup of the meeting of the People's Assembly in Tbilisi showed clearly that the authorities are not even thinking of any negotiating process with the opposition. Now Mikhail Saakashvili is ready to communicate with his domestic opponents only with the use of force, thus compensating his total helplessness in the international arena, by the way.
