Opposition postpones the overthrow to spring

2009-01-15 11:44

The radical part of Georgian opposition, that previously stated its intention to go in the streets on January 25th of Tbilisi in order to strive for Saakashvili's resignation, postponed its antigovernmental action to spring, RIA-Novosti informs.


"Now opposition is getting ready for permanent protest actions from early spring with the only demand - resignation of the President. One-day warning actions do not correspond aspirations of the people, which demands immediate and unconditional resignation of the President. The action will begin in spring and will not be finished until the main demand is satisfied. If the administration uses force - it is its collapse. We will stay in the streets till the end, and that is why we postpone rallies and manifestations to spring - holding such actions in winter is more difficult", said Eka Beselia, one of the For United Georgia party leaders.

According to Beselia, there is no time for single warning actions at the current stage: there is a need "to find more effective ways to change power".

"We cancelled the action of January 25th as it was planned as a one-day, warning one, without any specific demands and result. The society demands the action to have Saakashvili gone once and forever. The last and crucial action begins in March. We will not go until the victory. We do not exclude peaceful picketing of state institutions, we are preparing for very radical actions and civil commotion", Levan Gachechiladze, the leader of the United Opposition, shares her view.

At present moment Georgian opposition is working out a memorandum containing the demand of President Saakashvili's resignation.
