Rose Revolution did not settle the problem of human rights in Georgia

2009-11-23 15:58

Rose Revolution did not settle the problems faced by Georgia; in particular, there have been no significant changes in the human rights field.


According to Rosbalt, this was stated today during the sixth anniversary of revolution by one of the leaders of the oppositional Christian Democrats fraction Levan Vepkhvadze.

"This is not just our evaluation but the evaluation of international organizations and partner-states. They believe that, unfortunately, those ideals that inspired hundreds of thousands of people to come out into the streets in the days of revolution have not been achieved", - he said.

"That is why, - the delegate explained, - we, Christian Democrats, assert that the way of revolutionary development is not the one that could bring any definite result, which was confirmed by Rose Revolution. According to Vepkhvadze, Georgia is now facing "the problem of human rights and freedom of expression which the country was facing in due time".

Six years ago, Georgia survived the change of power. The opposition did not agree with the results of parliamentary election and came out into the streets. The movement was headed by Mikhail Saakashvili, Nino Burjanadze and Zurab Zhvania.

The dissidents rushed into the parliament building during the speech delivered by the then President of Georgia Eduard Shevardnadze who finally had to submit resignation. Eventually, Saakashvili became the president of Georgia, Burjanadze remained the speaker of parliament and Zhvania was appointed the prime minister.

Georgia set a course for joining NATO and integration into European Union. The United States became the country's strategic partner; they are still providing financial and political assistance to the republic.
