Parliament Speaker Says Georgia Moving forward, Opposition Interrupts with USSR Anthem

Georgian Parliament Speaker Archil Talakvadze has stated during his speech in parliament today that a fair court is the basis of state development and “Georgia is on the right path” in this regard. However, the opposition played the anthem of the Soviet Union during the speech, stating that the situation in the country is ‘alarming in many fields,’ reports.

Talakvadze, who presented an annual report of parliament's activities, stated the judicial reform is successful in the country, with surveys of foreign organisations proving this, and the number of lawsuits from Georgia to the European Court of Human Rights has decreased by 60 per cent. 

He stated that the current government “is the guarantor of peace and security” and will allow nobody to stir destabilization, responding to the opposition’s ‘warning’ of a possible confrontation if a Russian delegation is allowed into the country during the CoE ministerial in Tbilisi in May, the event Georgia is hosting as the CoE chair country. 

Opposition members interrupt parliament speaker's speech with USSR anthem.

Talakvadze said that there are many in the Georgian opposition now, who while in office, sold strategic state objects on Russia and ‘abandoned soldiers’ on the battlefield during the Russia-Georgia 2008 war.
