Roman Fin’s address to the Georgian people

Georgia is facing a deadly threat. Georgian Dream, the coalition that came to power, did not manage to put an end to the Saakashvili’s regime and arrest the culprits (they were given freedom). In 2012, after losing the elections, with the help of American and European globalist forces they began preparing for revenge and again usurping the power. They have no chance to achieve it through democratic elections because their real rating is no more than 7-9%. The people even wanted early elections in order to get rid of the disproportionately inflated 45% representation that doesn’t correspond to their real, deteriorating popularity, considering the people’s hatred towards them. Accordingly, the only way for the Nationals to come back is to usurp the power. The West undoubtedly supports Saakashvili – they intend to restore his rule. If we consider the historical experience of staging colored revolutions, it won’t be difficult at all. The Nationals are openly speaking about the future Maidan.
A special group will work on the issue of the Board of Trustees of the Georgian Public Broadcaster (GPB). The group will try to solve the deadlock created around the GPB board after the verdict of the Constitutional Court. Majority member Eliso Chapidze claims that the court made a decision that would disturb the reform of the Public Broadcaster. Last year the Parliament amended the Law on Broadcasting, introducing a new rule for the formation of the Board of Trustees of GPB. The new rule envisaged pre-term termination of the authority of seven current members of the Board from January 2014. In December 2013 however, six members of the board filed a lawsuit with the Constitutional Court arguing that the termination of their authority was illegal and unconstitutional.
