CDM Leader Says Blocking of Highways ‘Counterproductive’
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 4 May.'09 / 18:48

MP Giorgi Targamadze, the leader of Christian-Democratic Movement (CDM) and of parliamentary minority group, said decision of “the radical opposition” to resort to blocking of key highways would be “counterproductive step in fight against the current regime.”

He also warned that such move might serve “as an impeding step” for the planned NATO exercises in Georgia, scheduled between May 6 and June 1 in Vaziani military base, twenty kilometers east of Tbilisi.

MP Giorgi Targamadze said that the NATO’s exercises “are of strategic importance for Georgia.”

“Therefore, the Christian-Democrats call, first and foremost the authorities, as well as the radical part of the opposition not to turn internal tactical political struggle into actions against national interests,” he said and added that such a scenario “may put a serious question mark on the Georgian statehood and on our country’s European future.”

He also said that “unfortunately” the CDM’s seven-point proposal for overcoming the current political standoff triggered “inadequate” reaction from both the opposition and “part of the radical opposition.”

“With the purpose of overcoming the current political crisis, Christian-Democratic Movement has prepared a concrete plan to peacefully prevail over the Saakashvili’s authorities, which will be presented to the society in next few days,” MP Giorgi Targamadze said.
