The organisers of Sunday's protest are urging everyone to wear medical masks and keep away from each other if possible. The Shota Rustaveli avenue, located near the parliament, has been closed to traffic over a large number of people there.
Some of the protesters told Sputnik that they had come from the country's remote regions on special buses provided by the United National Movement party, founded by former President Mikhail Saakashvili. They were holding flags of Georgia, the European Union and the United States.
Georgia held a general election on 31 October, which resulted in the ruling Georgian Dream party emerged as the winner. Altogether, seven political parties that managed to cross the one-percent threshold became eligible for entering the legislature. Following the announcement of the results, the country's opposition has been organising protests.
