Parliamentary Session Convened
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 12 Jun.'09 / 09:20

Parliament will hold a session for the first time on June 12 since the launch of street protest rallies over two months ago.

“There is whole set of important draft laws, which require immediate discussions,” Davit Bakradze said in televised remarks aired by the national television stations early on June 12.

Area outside the Parliament on the Rustaveli Avenue is a key venue of the ongoing protests launched on April 9. The Parliament has been closed down since then; lawmakers from the ruling party explained the move with a desire to prevent their direct contact with protesters in order to prevent possible tensions and incidents between them, similar to the one which took place on June 11 between protesters and Levan Tarkhnishvili, the chairman of Central Election Commission (CEC).

The CEC chairman’s car was pelted with eggs by activists of youth pro-opposition groups, whet it approached the Rustaveli Theater, close to the Parliament, where a British embassy reception was held. Before entering into the Theater building, the CEC chairman was whistled, booed and verbally insulted; at one point two middle-aged men approached him and punched him for several times; leaders of the pro-opposition youth group where shouting: “don’t touch him [Tarkhnishvili].” The CEC chairman said later that he may consider filing a lawsuit against those who have assaulted him.
