Khatia Dekanoidze, a member of the United National Movement (UNM) party and the party’s Kutaisi mayoral candidate in the 2021 municipal elections, read out the jailed ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili’s address during the protest rally in Kutaisi.
“Kutaisi should have happy, high-income employed people, who do not leave Kutaisi but return to this amazing city,” Saakashvili said.
According to the ex-president, people in Kutaisi organized an election revolution, and no puppet mayor would be able to rule this city that Saakashvili has been planning to develop. “We should get prepared for a general attack,” the ex-president announced.
Opposition parties protest in the second largest city of Kutaisi demanding the release of jailed ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili.
