Salome Zourabichvili has said she is not about to join the opposition in the country
Salome Zourabichvili, who was forced to leave her post as Georgian foreign minister on Wednesday, has said she is not about to join the opposition in the country, but will concentrate on preparations for parliamentary elections in 2008. "At this point, I have no intention of joining any opposition party, but this does not mean that I will have no contacts with the opposition," she said on live television. "I will prepare for the [2008 parliamentary] elections and urge everybody to do the same." Zourabichvili is well known for her pro-Western views and criticism of the government. She was forced to resign after a confrontation between parliament and the Foreign Ministry over the ratification of the European Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities, which deputies said had been postponed for too long because of the ministry. Zourabichvili said he hold told President Mikhail Saakashvili about the problems with parliament before she resigned. "The president's ratings have fallen a little," she said on television. "And however strange this might sound, this means that the ratings of certain forces in parliament are growing. I told the president about this, and also told him that my resignation was a concession to these forces."
