National Council preparing for protest rallies

In his interview with Rezonansi, Conservative Party leader Zviad Dzidziguri said that in the autumn session there are a number of protest rallies planned. However he adds that the National council is seriously prepared to make a coalition from different opposition parties which will be united for one goal – to make Saakashvili leave the post.

“I will not confirm with whom we are having talks and consultations, because when such things become clear the, threat of failure increases. I just want to say one thing, that those parts of the opposition which are radical and the second part which was more moderate should not unite. As they have quite different ways of running politics and different plans. In our coalition will be those parties which think that by protest rallies and demanding snap elections Saakashvili will be made to leave the President’s post,” Dzidzihuri said.

“We will start our activities very soon, in this autumn. We will introduce our plans to the society very soon. I have been in politics more than 20 years and rallies were, are and will be important until it is necessary for the country. But street rallies need to be run adequately, if it is not run properly, the rally will be unsuccessful,” Dzidziguri said, adding that government does not have a right to be protected as there is a very negative mood among people towards them. They have lots of complaints starting from increased prices and ending with the occupied territories.
