More than one million signatures have been collected in support of the change of power in Georgia. In some cities, including Tbilisi, Batumi, Kutaisi, rallies were held for the resignation of Mikhail Saakashvili.

According to GTimes, the rally was organized by the committee of representatives of public and political organizations. A few hundred people gathered on the square in front of the presidential palace in Tbilisi on Friday. During the rally, organizers read out the ultimatum, where it was said that if the president was going to ignore the requirement of the people, they would resort to radical measures.

Another rally in Tbilisi took place on January 6th. About 100 people gathered in front of the building of the former Parliament on Rustaveli Avenue, with posters "Mikhail, Goodbye", "Mikhail, go away," "Go and have some rest," " Saakashvili's presidential term expired on January 5," "Mikhail, respect the Constitution."

The protesters drew attention to the fact that Saakashvili's presidential term expires, according to the Georgian Constitution, on January 5th, 2013, but he artificially extended it until the fall of 2013. Saakashvili himself has repeatedly stated that he would not leave his post until the presidential election in October.
