Georgian opposition announces large rally, re-blocking of parliament
The leader of the European Georgia opposition party David Bakradze has announced a “large-scale” rally on November 25 in front of parliament, adding that demonstrators will ‘peacefully block the entrances’ of the legislative body on November 26.
He said that demonstrations protesting the rejection of the election bill on the transition to a fully proportional electoral system will take place every day.
"However, on November 25 the opposition and their supporters will gather on Rose Square and join demonstrators standing in front of parliament, on Rustaveli Avenue, later that day. On the next day peaceful demonstrators will prevent the parliament from working," Agenda.ge cited Bakradze as saying.
The leader of the European Georgia said that the opposition "is not happy" about blocking the parliament activities, but "the current state leadership has left no other way when they broke their promise [concerning] fully proportional elections."
