Georgia, Tbilisi, Nov. 24 / Trend N. Kirtskhalia /
It is difficult for the former Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze to forecast the consequences of the rally of the Representative Peoples' Assembly, scheduled for tomorrow, but believes that there is a threat to the regime.
"Breakup of this power is quite possible if the Representative Peoples' Assembly will actually be able to oppose the authorities and provide documents of their outrages" Shevardnadze told Trend on Wednesday.
Representative Peoples' Assembly will launch rally in front of the Parliament at 3 pm and the gathered are expected to decide on regime change at 5pm. The People's Assembly states about "start of breakup" of the President Mikheil Saakashvili's power. Leaders of the meeting say they are ready to start mass protests on power change, if "enough" people will be in front of the Parliament on this day.
However, according to Shevrdnadze, it is difficult to predict the situation.
"I have experienced great disappointment in my life, and I cannot say any concrete thing on this issue," the former president said.
