Georgian opposition to create public committees

Georgian opposition said it is beginning on Friday "to create public committees across the country for a better holding next week of peaceful actions to demand the resignation of (President) Mikhail Saakashvili."

The opposition declared "total mobilization of Georgian citizens for protest actions" and said next week its activists will leave for Georgian regions to arrange for the travel of supporters to Tbilisi.
Opposition leaders said all those willing to join the protests will be able to register at the committees.

Rallies will continue during Easter, however they will be modest, the opposition said, adding activists will daily visit all the places in Tbilisi where demonstrations were held.
In the meantime, authorities said they were ready to discuss all issues with the opposition except for Saakashvili's resignation.

However, the opposition responded the resignation is the only demand, which it may discuss with the president.

"The opposition is ready to meet Saakashvili and explain to him why he has to resign and to listen to his arguments why he does not want to resign," opposition leaders said.
