Georgia, Tbilisi, Nov. 26 / Trend N.Kirtzkhalia /
Leader of "Our Georgia - Free Democrats" Party Irakli Alasania named as hopeless yesterday's action held under the title "National Assembly".
He said he expected nothing special from the actions, but everyone has a right to express his opinion, at least in this form, Alasania said at the news conference.
"This action could not bring a political result. The main thing for us is to change the electoral environment and free the country from the" National Movement" through elections," Alasania said.
Alasania said he is against bringing political processes to the street and does not intend to participate in actions.
A rally of the Georgian People's Assembly took place in front of the parliament building in Tbilisi yesterday. The participants demanded the resignation of the president and snap presidential and parliamentary elections.
Opposition leader Nino Burjanadze was a co-organizer of the event. The rally, which lasted 2.5 hours, brought together up to 6,000 people. The assembly adopted a verdict of non-confidence in the government and current President Mikheil Saakashvili.
The small number of people who gathered in front of parliament "did not allow us to resort to radical measures," Burjanadze told reporters.
