By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:

Georgian ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili's United National Movement party is switching over to emergency mode, the minority leader in the Georgia's parliament, David Bakradze said on Dec. 22 at the party's office.

He said the party will try using legal and political means to resist to the court's decision on suspension of the Tbilisi mayor Gigi Ugulava's powers.

"We will work in an emergency mode and the party will make further statements about what steps we will take in the coming days," Bakradze said.

United National Movement is now working in the mode of boycotting the Georgian parliament, where it is a minority. The party is also discussing the possibility of attracting international organizations in order to disclose the fact of pressure on the parliamentary minority.
