Georgian oppositionists storm the parliament building. Dozens of opposition supporters in Georgia are trying to break into the Georgian parliament after candidates for the post of prime minister nominated Interior Minister Georgy Gakharia.
Oppositionists are making “corridors of shame” for deputies of the ruling party “Georgian Dream,” while opposition deputies are trying to get their radical supporters into parliament, but the police are not letting them do this.
Participants shout “Shame!”
In June-August, protests took place in Tbilisi with a demand of the resignation of a number of officials, including parliament speaker Irakli Kobakhidze and Interior Minister Georgy Gakharia.
The reason was a speech of State Duma deputy Sergei Gavrilov from Kobakhidze’s place as part of a meeting of the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of Orthodoxy. As a result, the speaker of the parliament lost his post, but the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Gakharia, did not.
Today, after the summer holidays, the work of the Georgian parliament has resumed. After the anthem was performed, the oppositionists booed deputies from the “Georgian Dream”, called them slaves, and the Minister of Internal Affairs – the executioner.
