Georgia, Tbilisi, September 6 /Trend, N. Kirtzkhalia/
After three hours of discussion, the Board of Trustees of Georgia's Public Broadcaster displaced Director General Georgi Baratashvili from his post on Friday.
His removal from the post was supported by nine members of the Board of Trustees. They believe that the Director General was required to submit an anti-crisis plan, but didn't and this indicates that there is no an exact plan for getting out of a crisis at Georgia's Public Broadcaster.
The meeting of the Board of Trustees was held against a background of protests, the participants of which demanded that Baratashvili not be removed from his post. Several tens of people from various human rights NGOs believe that the Board of Trustees still conducts a policy of pro-presidential United National Movement Party and attempts to change the current power in Georgia's Public Broadcaster.
They threaten to hold large-scale protests.
Meanwhile, the Board of Trustees has already announced a new contest to replace the post of Director General, and all interested persons can nominate their candidacies within 10 days.
