TBILISI, May 23 (ITAR-TASS) - Peaceful protest actions will "continue until Mikhail Saakashvili resigns," a top functionary of the National Assembly of Georgia opposition public forum Nino Burdzhanadze said on Sunday.
"The action is seeking to achieve the resignation of the president in the peaceful way and to hold early presidential and parliamentary elections," she said live on the Georgian Public TV on Sunday.
Nino Burdzhanadze intends to appeal to the embassies of the United States, Great Britain, Germany and France accredited in the country "to send their representatives to observe the protest actions." She noted that she "will inform the chiefs of the foreign diplomatic missions that this action is peaceful, legitimate and authorized."
From 2,000 to 3,000 people were participating in a rally at the Georgian Public TV and 1,000 people on Sunday evening. The number of protesters will go down to several hundred people, who will be on duty there overnight to Monday.
The state authorities stated that Saakashvili "enjoys the support of most Georgians and will not resign until the expiry of his presidential term in October 2013." "The opposition cannot make the president resign ahead of time," they said.
