Georgia: ‘Berlin-type wall’ built in front of parliament — opposition MP

Opposition parliamentarians booed parliamentary deputies near the entrance to the Georgian parliament in on Thursday. The Parliament was surrounded by police with an iron barrier, which oppositionist Georgi Baramidze called the “Berlin wall” blaming the head of the ruling Georgian Dream party Bidzina Ivanishvili in «making this country go back to the Soviet Khrushchev era». Deputies had to find... Еще other ways to get into government headquarters so they would not be targetted with the cries of «shame». The protests were triggered on November 14 after constitutional amendments aiming to change the parliamentary election system to an entirely proportional vote, beginning in 2020, were blocked by ruling party lawmakers. Large-scale political reforms were announced by Bidzina Ivanishvili, who previously promised to hold next year's election under a fully-proportional voting system.
