Georgia, Tbilisi, April 16 / Trend N. Kirtzkhalia /
On April 10-11 Gullup and IPM polls revealed via telephone that 42 percent of Tbilisi's residents support pre-term presidential elections, 25 percent - against, 33 percent failed to answer unambiguously.
According to the poll, only 26 percent of population likes Mikheil Saakashvili's effectiveness of work. The same index of Gullup held in June hit 42 percent. Respondents, disagreeing Mikheil Saakashvili's effectiveness of work, hit 76 percent. They call for pre-term presidential elections and think that people going into the street do not support Saakashvili rather than support opposition.
According to the research, the President's resignation will not be solved easily. Most of Tbilisi's residents (56 percent) do not believe that Saakashvili will resign on his will and determine new elections. Only 10 percent think that he will resign.
Roughly 70 percent state that active opposition is very important for Georgia. The same index hit 61 percent in June 2008. Only 1 of 10 respondents thinks that it is not so important or not important at all. Though each second respondent of 10 has no answer for this question.
Saakashvili's position is much weaker in Tbilisi than in other regions.
