Georgia, Tbilisi, Feb. 8 / Trend N. Kirtskhalia /
The Georgian extra-parliamentary opposition calls upon the people to come to parliament when Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili makes a speech in the legislative body. "You should come and express your protest against the wrong policy of the authorities which led people to starvation," one of the leaders of the Conservative Party, Lasha Chkhartishvili, said at a briefing.
He held the briefing with a representative of the People's Party, Aleko Shalamberidze, and the representatives of refugees.
Opposition members said that the president must feel the anger of the people, and that it should be done by conducting a mass protest near the parliament.
Shalamberidze also urged refugees to come to the parliament and express their protest. "Saakashvili will tell a lie again. We should show that we do not believe him," he stressed.
Saakashvili will make a speech in parliament on Feb. 11.
