MPs not allowed to enter parliament by protesters in Tbilisi
The parliament building in Tbilisi has been blocked off and demonstrators protesting the rejection of a ruling Georgian Dream party proposed election bill are not allowing MPs to enter the building.
All of the three entrances of the legislative body have been blocked since yesterday and the protestors refuse to remove the barriers "until the ruling party keeps its promise and accepts a fully proportional electoral system for 2020."
Several ruling party MPs, including Revaz Arveladze, Gia Zhorzholiani and Merab Kvaraia, who came to parliament earlier yesterday, have not been allowed to enter the building, Agenda.ge reported.
Ruling party MPs are now gathering at the headquarters of the party for a meeting.
