As VZGLYAD reports the ex speaker stated that as long as President Mikheil Saakashvili remained in power any election results would be falsified.
Burdzhanadze tells about her intention to continue to take part in formation of a coalition of the implacable forces and make best efforts for its reinforcement.
"It is difficult to explain to the civilized world what tricks the authorities are using for falsifications in Georgia", - Nino Burdzhanadze told in her interview with Maestro TV.
"For instance, at last year's parliamentary election some benefits were promised to the arrestees provided their families voted for the ruling United National Movement or prevented opposition supporters from coming to vote ", - she added.
The ex speaker is going to inform Western partners on impossibility to call democratic elections under current conditions at home.
Late night yesterday the ruling party announced its rejection to pursue debates on heightening the voter turnout barrier from 30 to 45 or 50% at the first direct elections of Tbilisi mayor scheduled for May with the opposition.
The barrier increase was urged by Alliance for Georgia leader, ex Georgia's Envoy to UN Irakli Alasania.
