There was confrontation at a sitting session of Tbilisi City Hall as a result of which all opposition members of City Hall left the hall, 24 Hours reports.

Confrontation began when opposition suggested the creation of a special commission which would investigate the events which occurred on May 26 when the police dispersed protest rally participants in the centre of Tbilisi. The initiator of this offer was Republican member Tina Khidasheli: ”there was a crackdown on peaceful protesters. This was a special operation of punishment and that’s why a special commission should be created which will study in detail what happened in front of parliament,” Khidasheli said.
