restore order. the georgian dream coalition is planning a clean sweep through parliament and top of his wish list is getting the country's lame duck leader mikhail saakashvili to step aside the president's new decade of undisputed rain hit the buffers when the opposition bloc sealed victory in the parliamentary election a few days ago from tbilisi his alexia's u.f.c. . it felt as if georgia had won the football world cup thousands in the streets celebrated the surprising win by the opposition and despite fears the ruling regime may somehow hamper this triumph soon their worries were swept aside by the president himself. it is evident that the georgian dream coalition has secured a majority this means this parliamentary majority has to form the next government for us at least for me the views of this coalition were fundamentally unacceptable and still remain so. just six months ago an opposition win was deemed impossible

12:23 pm
you have a situation where the new parliamentary majority wants to investigate abuse it could well produce a crisis full of his close associates so they could not only have lost the election but they could face serious legal complications the georgia dream bards the leader and possibly the next prime minister because anybody really has already made his position clear. this man's ideology has established a crime of violence and torture it would be good if he submitted his resignation rather than now starting various procedures to force him to resign. it was not only the prison tape scandal which brought these fortress of power down say experts corruption among elites daunting poverty and playing hardball with russia all contributed but for now georgia is welcoming any new era hoping for a fresh start georgia's history is rich with different sorts of bloody cold it does
