The opposition will hold a rally in Tbilisi on November 6, the press service of the National Movement reports.
Initially, the party leader Nika Melia announced that the next rally would be held on November 7.
Melia said at the rally in front of the parliament that the opposition will start large-scale demonstrations on Tuesday.
According to him, the first rally will be held on Tuesday in Batumi, then in Kutaisi, other cities and finally in Tbilisi to express protest and distrust towards the local self-government elections results.
He also addressed the 3rd president Mikheil Saakashvili, who is on a hunger strike in prison, and said that he would do everything possible to get him out of prison.
According to Nika Melia, in parallel with the rallies, they will appeal all election violations in the districts and then in the courts in order to go through full legal procedures. As Melia says, the aim is to show Western partners that holding rallies is not the will and aim of the opposition, but it’s necessary due to the current situation.
The opposition does not recognize the results of the local self-government elections as they believe that the Georgian Dream falsified it. Based on the election results, out of 64 cities and municipalities, in the mayoral elections, 63 districts were won by the ruling party, while the UNM candidate won only in Tsalenjikha.
The schedule of opposition protests is as follows:
November 2 (Tuesday) – 17:00 – Batumi;
November 3 (Wednesday) – 20:00 – Zugdidi;
November 4 (Thursday) – 17:00 – Kutaisi;
November 6 (Saturday) – Tbilisi.
