Georgia`s ruling party proposes to suspend pre-election campaign

06.08.12 19:48

The United National Movement ruling party of Georgia has proposed to suspend the pre-election campaign in the country for two days with regard to the 4th anniversary of the August war, which took place in 2008.

One of the leaders of the ruling party Mikheil Machachavariani said all kinds of agitation, including meetings with voters, TV or video commercials and others should be temporarily suspended.

Mr. Machavariani called on all the political parties to join the initiative and with this pay tribute to the soldiers fallen in the war.

Several political parties have responded to the United National Movement`s proposal and joined its initiative.

Georgia fought a brief war with Russia in August 2008. The war broke out in August 2008, when Russia crushed an assault by Georgia`s U.S.-trained military on the pro-Russian rebel region of South Ossetia, launched after fatal skirmishes with separatists and months of Russian baiting.

South Ossetia, a tiny region of about 30,000 people declared independence after the war, but remains heavily dependent on Moscow`s financial help and military protection.

South Ossetia, which has run its own affairs with Russian backing since the early 1990s, is recognised as independent by only a handful of nations, including Russia.

There are some 13,600 displaced persons living in Georgia in a total of 14 settlements.
