Nogaideli: ‘Ballot Fraud May Cost Merabishvili his Life’
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 7 Apr.'10 / 18:14

Ex-PM Zurab Nogaideli, who leads Movement for Fair Georgia, warned Interior Minister Vano Merabishvili against ballot fraud in May 30 local elections saying it “may cost him his life.”

“Thanks god it is not up to Vano Merabishvili to define a winner in the elections; it is up to the Georgian society,” Nogaideli told journalists after he was asked to comment Merabishvili’s remarks in a newspaper interview saying that the opposition was not popular and would fail to succeed in the upcoming elections.

“If Vano [Merabishvili] has election fraud on his mind it will cost him much, it may even cost him his life,” Nogaideli said.

“This is a warning and a promise,” he added.

“Nobody in Georgia needs to be taught by Saakashvili and Merabishvili – two cowards - how to behave,” Nogaideli said.

Nogaideli’s party Movement for Fair Georgia is in an alliance with Party of People and Conservative Party. The alliance, known as National Council, said it would chose its Tbilisi mayoral candidate on April 9 after a public opinion survey between Conservative Party leader, Zviad Dzidziguri and Koba Davitashvili, leader of Party of People.
