United Opposition announce boycott of parliament

The United Opposition say they will boycott parliament in protest at the elections that they claim were rigged.

Labor leader Shalva Natelashvili has called on all opposition parties to boycott the new parliament.

“The united opposition refuses to enter this parliament and the united opposition stays with its people," United Opposition leader Levan Gachechiladze said.

He also called on the whole of Georgia to join the coalition at its planned protest on Monday outside the Sports Palace.

A source tells us the boycott announcement is just a matter of posturing.

Christian Democrats leader Giorgi Targamadze has already stated that they will not take part in the boycott.
