The Central Elections Commission's decision to declare Mikheil Saakashvili winner in the January 5 snap presidential election is politically motivated and will be rejected by the people, David Zourabichvili, a leader of the united opposition, told Interfax .
"The declaration of Mikheil Saakashvili as Georgia's president by the 'roll' majority in the Central Elections Commission changes nothing in the extremely tense political situation. We'll have a de-facto president, not recognized by the people," Zourabichvili said.
Opposition protest rallies will be permanent, he also said.
"A mass rally, to be held today in Tbilisi center at 2 p.m. is expected to draw dozens of thousands of deceived voters," he said.
The opposition will not go beyond the limits of law, Zourbaichvili said.
