Georgian Dream Event Still Searches for Venue

Presentation of Georgian dream initiated by Bidzina Ivanishvili was to be held on November 25, however their request to use the Sports Hall or Philharmonic Hall has not been satisfied so far, Alia reports.

The lawyer of Ivanishvili, Eka Beselia, comments: “we want the presentation to be held in a building and not in a street, to organize an event where the public movement Georgian Dream will be established officially. In the sports hall 5000 persons can fit and in the philharmonic hall – 2500 persons, so that is why we wanted to rent the sports hall,” Beselia said. According to her despite all the obstacles which the government tries to create against this movement, the Georgian Dream will be founded in near future.
