Georgian opposition demands reforms2008-12-02 19:00
Georgian opposition believes that at the NATO member countries Foreign Ministers meeting Georgia will receive no MAP (Membership Action Plan), and blames Saakashvili's government for it.gt-en-newsitem-inside
As Kakha Kukava, one of the opposition leaders, member of the Conservative party, states today, Georgia will not enter the next stage of relationships with the alliance at the meeting in Brussels.
«This decision will seem quite logical, as it was preceded by total ignoring of the recommendations, drawn at NATO summits in Riga and Bucharest, by Georgian government », - Kukava says.
According to Kukava, this ignoring of NATO recommendations reflected in events of November, 7th , 2007, total falsification of presidential and parliamentary elections on January, 5th and may 21st respectively, failure of reforms and military risky gambling, performed by the government in August.
«All these actions of Georgian government were logically followed by decreased pace of Georgian integration to NATO», - the opposition member points out.
He calls the latest two statements of Georgian government the most shocking ones. According to these statements, the issue of non-receiving or partial receiving of MAP is no longer relevant for Georgia, as the country can join NATO without the plan. «We stay loyal to the idea of Georgia's joining NATO, and believe, that a new plan of reforms must be worked out to accelerate the process of integration», - Kukava states and mentions that representatives of opposition and non-governmental sector must participate in this work.
