Members of the party ‘European Georgia’ symbolically locked one of the gates of the Parliament of Georgia.
Gigi Ugulava chained one of the gates of the Parliament and padlocked. He addressed the law enforcers inside the building to stay calm as they do not plan to enter. He added that the key of the padlock will be given to the people as a sign that they locked the building.
The demonstration is underway on Rustaveli Avenue, in front of the Parliament building.
Parliamentary and nonparliamentary opposition parties, including the United National Movement, European Georgia, Democratic Movement-United Georgia, and Lelo joined the demonstration. Protesters from the regions of Georgia are attending the rally as well.
Opposition and civic activists are holding demonstrations amid the parliament’s rejection of the electoral bill which envisaged to move from a mixed electoral system to a proportional one.
