Protest at Rustaveli Avenue over

Protest of oppositional parties at central Rustaveli Avenue in Tbilisi is over. The protest participants once again objected to the results of October 31, 2020 parliamentary elections.

According to Gigi Ugulava, one of the leaders of European Georgia Party, silent protest will be held on November 17-18 during the visit of Mike Pompeo, U.S. Secretary of State to Georgia.

“We will welcome him (Pompeo) together. We will lay stickers on the ground reading ‘falsified’ from Rustaveli Avenue to Chavchavadze Avenue,” Ugulava said.

Ugulava said that such an activity will be a signal to the world that Georgian people will not reconcile with falsehood.

Leaders of oppositional refuse to take up MP mandates in the parliament of the 10th convocation. The opposition has three demands: Holding of snap parliamentary elections, resignation of Chairperson of Central Election Commission and release of political prisoners.

The second round of a dialogue held between the ruling Georgian Dream Party and the opposition at the residence of U.S. Ambassador to Georgia with the mediation of U.S. Ambassador and Head of EU Delegation in Georgia ended with no tangible results.
