Protesters are gathered on the Boris Paichadze National Stadium for a rally organized by some of those opposition parties, which are behind the ongoing street protests.
Protesters are expected to later march towards the Rustaveli Avenue outside the Parliament in what the opposition called would be “a public parade” aimed at both expressing protest and marking the Independence Day.
The National Forum, a party which was among ongoing protest organizers, said last night that it would join the May 26 protest events, but not in a capacity of organizer. The party cited differences with some other opposition parties on the future tactics. Alliance for Freedom, which initially was among protest organizer parties, said on May 26 that it would quit the group.
