«It's hard to predict how may the current confrontation between Saakashvili and the opposition end. It have approximately equal support: Saakashvili's supports is more concentrated in rural areas and also the state apparatus and law enforcement agencies support him a lot. And support for the opposition is more concentrated in the cities of Tbilisi, Kutaisi. Therefore, the collision is very serious. The opposition is set for a decisive struggle and victory. Conflict may end the same way as the last time: Saakashvili survived, persevered, and the opposition has lost its force, enthusiasm and exhausted in few months. And there can appear some conditions because of wich present regime will fall» - said Markov.
