Eduard Shevardnadze: without opposition’s unification authorities will not change

In his interview to Kvela Siakhle the ex President of Georgia Eduard Shevardnadze talked about the opposition which according to him is weak today. “The opposition was strong when they gathered thousands of people. They made a big mistake when they took them to Sameba cathedral. What did those people want in Sameba I cannot understand,” Shevardnadze said.

“If people follow those protest rallies the result will be obvious, however they are so frustrated that it will not be a surprise if they do not go to a protest meeting. There are some smart and wise politicians in the opposition however I am not quite sure whether they will be able to run this country. For instance Nino Burjanadze and Irakli Alasania, both are very smart but even in them I am not sure they will do everything in the way as they should do if they are in the authorities,” the ex-President said. “The major thing is unification of opposition. Without the opposition’s unification the authorities will not change and if they cannot realise it then I think there is no opposition in the country. If they unite, more people will join them and there is no stronger power than people in this world,” Shevardnadze concluded.
