Abkhazian opposition attempting to force government to resign
Abkhazian opposition vs government
The opposition of Abkhazia has announced preparations for a mass protest to force the president to dismiss the government.
“This government has brought the country to an energy crisis and did not carry out a single reform. The lives of Abkhazians are noticeably worse. It has to go,” Adgur Ardzinba, the leader of the opposition, declared. If the President refuses to dismiss the government, the opposition will seek the President’s own resignation, he added.
The opposition intends to stage a “nationwide” protest in front of the government complex. The date has has not been set, but provisionally it will be in April of this year. A protest might seem like no big deal, but in Abkhazia this method has been quite successful in recent history.
