Opposition members believe that the Act of Economic Freedom was published to "overlay the negative background created after the publication of Tagliavini's commission report".
Saganelidze is sure that the reforms, proposed by the President, can affect the development of Georgian economy negatively.
He added that society must keep it from implementation otherwise the Georgian economy, even now in poor condition, will get one more strike.
Onopriashvili highlighted the government of Georgia conduced the wrong economic policy after the Rose Revolution. In result, the average level of unemployment increased from 13 per cent in 2004 to 17 per cent in 2008. Experts claim the real level to amount 25 per cent.
The Alliance for Georgia members reminded that the foreign debt reached USD 5 bn over the years of Saakashvili's rule, and after August 2008 practically no foreign investments come.
Opposition believes the economic policy of the country should be seriously revised. They promised that the economic program of the Alliance for Georgia will be introduced to the community on October 20th.
Previously Georgia Times reported that in the course of his speech in the parliament Saakashvili proposed the Act of Economic Freedom implying granting more freedom to the economy, drawing the role of the state in the economy to minimum, creation of additional legislative guarantees for local businessmen and foreign investors.
