Burjanadze Gears Up for Protest Rallies
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 29 Apr.'11 / 13:49

Nino Burjanadze, leader of Democratic Movement-United Georgia opposition party, and a driving force behind an opposition movement People’s Assembly, reiterated that on May 2 the movement would announce the date when it would launch protest rallies.

In an interview with the Georgian daily, Rezonansi, published on April 29, Burjanadze said that as decided by the People’s Assembly at an indoor rally in March, the movement on May 2 would lay out some of the key parts of the action plan for peaceful protest rallies.

She said that in recent months the People’s Assembly was actively campaigning in the regions, setting up “resistance committees” to create a well-organized group of activists in all the regions of the country.

“It took last several months to the People’s Assembly to create a very serious movement, incorporating several components, involving our truth, strength of large number of people, well-organized people and a right vision. It will definitely yield a result and we will return back our constitutional rights, restore elementary justice and achieve that this government will definitely be gone,” Burjanadze said.

She said that the date of launch of protest rallies would “not be too far from May 2”.

Burjanadze also said that she had consultations with some opposition parties, which she did not specify, and added that the People’s Assembly would be ready to cooperate with any opposition party, “which really wants to struggle against this government.”

So far many opposition parties have distanced themselves from the People's Assembly, not least because of the movement's association with Burjanadze. She said in a separate interview earlier this month that she was sure many opposition parties would change their position after seeing strength of the People’s Assembly.

Burjanadze is on the same front with those opposition parties, which are increasingly criticizing a group of eight opposition parties willing to negotiate with the authorities on electoral system reform. In this regard the opposition Georgian Party stands on the same position, but personal rivalry and confrontation between Burjanadze and some of the leaders of the Georgian Party dominates their relations making their cooperation so far impossible.
