Demonstrators continue picketing parliament building in Tbilisi

18 November 2019, 12:12 - NovostiNK
Protesters in Tbilisi, Georgia continue blockading parliament, Imedi TV reports.

The demonstrators gathered outside the parliament building are not allowing lawmakers to enter.

Two ruling party MPs from the Georgian Dream-Democratic Georgia party attempted to enter the building early morning, only to be barred by protesters.

The protesters are only allowing administrative staffers in.

Zaal Udumashvili, member of the opposition United National Movement, who is among the protesters, told Imedi TV that the demonstration isn’t a blockade but rather a picket, since they are banning only MPs from entering.

The opposition is picketing the parliament since November 17 evening.

Tents and sandbags are seen at three entrances of the building.

The protesters have even put locks on the gates. The say the picket will end only when lawmakers will gather to discuss the possibility of holding early elections under a proportional system in conditions of a transitional government.
