Georgia, Tbilisi / Тrend corr N. Kirtskhalia / Georgia will lift its state of emergency and return to normal life on 16 November, Nino Burjanadze, the parliamentary speaker, said at a briefing in Tbilisi.
"This is important information for the international community and our society," she said. "I hope that after the state of emergency is lifted, the country will continue its normal democratic processes... Democracy is not built in a day. But I am sure that we all do our best to show the world that democratic values will be preserved in this country."
A state of emergency was announced for Georgia after a demonstration of the opposition, urging the resignation of the President Mikheil Saakashvili, with early presidential elections taking place on 7 November.
