It is worth noting that, on June 13 the former Prime Minister Giorgi kvirikashvili resigned. As he announced, he had some disagreement with the chairman of the ruling party “Georgian Dream” on a number of fundamental issues. He thinks that the chairman should be given the opportunity to staff his team on the basis of his views.
The resignation of the prime minister was preceded serious public demonstrations. Georgians protested against raids that were carried out in two most popular clubs “Bassiani” and “Café Gallery”. The armed raids had been part of the government's response to five drug deaths over the past two weeks. Demonstrators assessed the action as an unnecessary one since the drug trades were said to be detained before the raids.

The other demonstration was caused by the decision of Tbilisi City Court which delivered a not guilty verdict against one of the defendants for the brutal murder of a teenage boy Davit Saralidze, who was killed on Khorava Street in Tbilisi, but found guilty for the premeditated murder of another teenager Levan Dadunashvili. Zaza Saralidze, father of 16-year-old boy, thinks the system protects one of the officials involved in the tragedy.
