"We held consultations with opposition forces and agreed that the president must resign before April 9 and call snap elections. Otherwise, we will stage protests," Burjanadze said. She added that her party will not participate in any referendum or parliamentary elections.
"If snap elections are not called before April 9, then we will urge our supporters to stage rallies," Burjanadze said.
