Georgian opposition leader calls on opposition to unite around People's Assembly
Georgia, Tbilisi, June 21 / Trend N.Kirtzkhalia /
Leader of the "Democratic Movement - United Georgia" Nino Burjanadze calls on the opposition forces to unite around the idea of convening People's Assembly. All political parties and forces that are actually going to struggle against the current regime and for the salvation of the country should do whatever possible to promote the convening of People's Assembly, Burjanadze told the Maestro television channel.
Burjanadze said the politicians should give people the opportunity to fix their position and say whether they want to continue to tolerate this government.
"That's why I do not consider it appropriate to participate in Munich consultations at this stage. Everybody has a right to talk about some political groupings and alliances, although I think People's Assembly is more important," Burjanadze said.
She believes People's Assembly is the mechanism, with which the authorities will have to reckon, although some politicians and the controlled media attempted to discredit it.
"The assembly may become a huge moral and political force and show the world that people do not want to put up with injustice," Burjanadze said.
Burjanadze believes the opposition should stop talking to each other by mathematical formulas in the language of pluses and minuses.
This can be explained by one thing: they all have the opportunity to bring many negative arguments, she added.
"We must realize one thing that we fight against the huge monster in the face of this government. There monster also has a lot of dirty money, controlled media and politicized police," Burjanadze said, noting that she had in mind not all of them and only those who are headed by the system, and those law enforcement brigades, which Vano Merabishvili did own police.
"It is difficult to fight with such a government, especially when we feel our responsibility for stability in the country," Burjanadze said.
