Several oppositionists have spent last night at the presidential administration building. The president is in Abkhazia and did not leave the republic, the Abkhazian presidential information department said.
Abkhazian parliament will meet at 11am Moscow time (8am BST) for an extraordinary session to discuss current situation in the republic and ways out of the crisis.
Republican state television is under control of opposition along with the presidential administration building.
The situation in Abkhazia’s capital, Sukhum, is stable in general, public transport is running, shops, cafes and restaurants are open.
The opposition believes that a systemic crisis has broken out in the country and drastic measures are needed, including formation of a national trust government and transfer of several presidential powers to the parliament and government.
On Tuesday, a multi-thousand opposition rally was staged in central Sukhum. One of opposition leaders Raul Khadzhimba stated that the coordination council assumed provisional governance in the republic. The president was proposed to resign.
