Labour Party refuses to join national protest

The Georgian Labour Party has refused to join the live chain, a national demonstration held after an appeal by the Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia. Party leader Shalva Natelashvili announced at the briefing that it was “Saakashvili's rally” and the Labour Party would not participate in it.
Natelashvili also outlined his position to the EU Ambassador to Georgia. The opposition party has asked the United States to renounce its recognition of Kosovo’s independence in order to avoid more problems in Georgia's breakaway regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
