Georgian Opposition Delivers Ultimatum Over Foreign Agents Law

Georgian Opposition Delivers Ultimatum Over Foreign Agents Law

Protests are taking place in Tbilisi for the third day in a row.

Participants of the Georgian opposition rally in the centre of Tbilisi delivered an ultimatum to the government on April 17 demanding to revoke the controversial draft law on foreign agents within an hour. By 23:00 local time (22:00 Minsk time), the ultimatum had expired, FormulaNews reports.

Part of those gathered then began to move towards the government building. The rally organisers demanded a meeting with Prime Minister Irakli Kobakhidze and urged the demonstrators to march peacefully in compliance with the law. Tens of thousands of people gathered in the streets.

The protesters were supported by President Salome Zurabishvili. "The third night of honourable protest against the adoption of the Russian law! The Georgian people are on one side, on the other - 83 MPs who voted against the European future. People always win!" she wrote on the X.
