“Elections are rigged” A protest started around this idea in Tbilisi a few minutes ago. Members of the opposition political party tried to set up a protest tent in front of the parliament building, which led to unrest in the area.
Police confiscated the tent. According to the available information, several protesters have been arrested. Tensions are still high in front of the parliament building. Members of the United National Movement party are asking the police for an explanation as to why the tent was confiscated.
Representatives of the opposition political party plan to set up a new tent in the area and set up in front of the parliament.
“Give me back the tent now, or a protocol will be drawn up,” said Levan Khabeishvili, a member of the United National Movement party.
At the same time, the National Movement party is ready to hold talks on “the only right way to ease the crisis, early elections” with the involvement of facilitators.
Here, the party “National Movement” calls on the “Georgian Dream” “not to think about storming the building where people are physically defending the chance to live in a normal country.” The United National Movement has always acted, acts and will act in the interests of civil peace and national interests.
“The whole opposition spectrum in Georgia, which even Tamar Zhvania counts, is supported by at least 1.2 million people, and it is much more than half of the electorate – today stands in the office of the United National Movement and physically protects Nika Melia, that is, civil peace and freedom,” they said. .
A day earlier, the prime minister (as a result of the entire government), the number one candidate on the Georgian Dream’s list, resigned, citing an operation against Nika Melia as destabilizing and radicalizing the country.
The United States and the European Union call on the parties to stay within the framework of peace, change their rhetoric and find a way to defuse the crisis.
“It is in the national interest of the country to defuse the crisis, to end political persecution, and we are ready to negotiate early elections, the only way to defuse the crisis, with the involvement of facilitators,” the UNM said in a statement.
At the same time, a sitting of the political council is being held in the office of the Georgian Dream. The party is discussing a new government.
It is already known that former Prime Minister Irakli Gharibashvili has been nominated for the post of Prime Minister. The new composition of the government and the government program will be presented to the parliament today. For this purpose a bureau meeting is scheduled for 18:00.
