Georgian opposition may block border checkpoints

Georgian opposition may really block border checkpoints in case Mikheil Saakashvili fails to meet their demand. But the opposition does not yet take any step in that direction, Georgian political scientist and project manager of Development and Cooperation Centre Paata Zakereishvili told a PanARMENIAN.Net correspondent.

“After yesterday’s developments, the Georgian opposition decided to delay realization of such plans. I think the opposition leaders will give up the idea, since blocked checkpoints will cause harm to neighboring states,” he stressed.

Georgian opposition leader Gubaz Sanikidzde recently declared of pro-opposition activists’ intention to block all border checkpoints in case of President Sahakashvili’s failure to meet their demand of resigning from post till May 11. “We apologize to Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkey and other countries that will not have a transit route via Georgia,” Mr. Sanikidze told journalists in a Monday meeting near Tbilisi Parliament House.
