Georgian citizens have been protesting for two weeks, blocking the entrance to parliament today



THOUSANDS of protesters have blocked parliamentary entrances in the Georgian capital today, highlighting a demand for a proportional electoral system as they claim the current electoral system favors the ruling party.

With the sounds of vuvuzel, the protesters occupied positions outside the entrance to the parliament in Tbilisi.



They sat on the sidewalk and set up tents in front of a parliamentary building guarded by hundreds of police officers.

The protests in Georgia have been going on for two weeks

The protests in the former Soviet republic have been going on for two weeks and a fully proportional electoral system is being sought.

The electoral system is set to change in 2024, but the opposition demands faster changes and claims that the existing rules have benefited the ruling Georgia Dream party, which has been in power since 2012.

Out of a total of 150 MPs, 73 are elected according to the model that the seats are divided by constituency and the winner in the constituency gets a mandate, so the opposition claims that by such a system the ruling party consolidates its majority because it won 71 of 73 such seats in the last election.

The remaining MPs are elected on a proportional basis.

Last week, police used water cannons against protesters

Last Monday, police used water cannons to disperse protesters outside parliament and arrested 37 people, later sentenced to four to 13 days in prison.

The opposition claims that the trials are politically motivated.

All major opposition parties in the country's 3.7 million people want closer ties with the West and have joined the protesters.

Protesters carry posters labeled “Together Against One!”, Referring to the leader of the ruling party, oligarch Bidzini Ivanishvili, who is said to be running the shadow of Georgian politics.
