November 23, the celebration of St. George’s Day is approaching and the Georgian people should mobilize peacefully – former president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili said in Facebook Live.
Ex-President of Georgia commented about the parliament’s turning down of constitutional changes prepared by the parliamentary majority regarding transformation onto the proportional system of elections.
“As expected, Ivanishvili (chairman of Georgian Dream party) lied and put everyone at deception. . . . This regime has no legitimacy any longer. Therefore, everything depends on us. The power is in unity,” Saakashvili said.
