Opposition: Declaration is an important step to drive the country out of the crisis

2009-01-29 16:00

Today the opposition organizations signed the declaration with the demands of President Saakashvili's resignation and early elections. According to Salome Zurabishvili , the leader of the Way of Georgia party, this is an "important step on Georgia's way out of crisis" - ITAR TASS.


The declaration is signed for "salvation of Georgia", Zurabishvili said.

David Usupashvili, the leader of the Republican party, said that "if Saakashvili doesn't resign, the opposition will help him in a peaceful manner".

Leaders of the opposition organization repeatedly stated they will conduct "permanent and large-scale peaceful actions with the demand of Saakashvili's resignation and snap elections" in February-March. In their view, Saakashvili lost trust of the major part of population and many foreign partners.

Many former high-ranking state officials has claimed their joining the opposition in recent time, among them: Nino Burjanadze, the ex-Speaker of the Parliament, Zurab Nogaidely, the ex-PM, Irakli Alasania, the ex-Permanent Representative of Georgia to the UN.

Nogaideli and his Movement for Fair Georgia didn't' sign the declaration. Nogaidely announced that "there is no general public mood for early resignation of the President yet, therefore drawing such demands is too early".

It's still unknown whether Irakli Alasania joins the document or not. Today the representatives of the rule stated that "there is no necessity to hold early presidential elections". They noted that "the opposition parties are not supported by the major part of population".

Let us remind that Saakashvili repeatedly claimed that his presidential term expires in early 2013 and he has no intention to leave early.
