The Georgian MPs did not support the creation of a commission to disperse rallies
Georgian MPs opposed the creation of the temporary investigative commission that would deal with the study of the events of November 7, 2007 and May 26, 2011 in Tbilisi. As recalled by Trend, the opposition faction of the "Unity for Justice" urged to create such a commission.
However, during the voting at the plenary session, held on Friday, 72 members of the Georgian Parliament opposed the creation of such commission, and only 14 deputies voted "for". In particular, MP from the National Democratic Party Guram Chahvadze, as well as representatives of the faction "Christian-Democrats", leaders of which are former journalists of TV Company "Imedi", have supported creation of such commission.
Recall, on November 7, 2007 in the Georgian capital, a protest rally was dispersed, after which the police stormed the building of TV Company "Imedi". It was smashed up and later closed. According to the country's leadership, TV channel "Imedi" urged the people to seize the power.
During the dispersal of the rally on May 26, 2011, organized by the opposition "National Assembly", the protesters, as well as the journalists were damaged.
