The population of Pankisi gorge opposes part of the elders and demands a new union.
Instead of joining the elderly, a new People"s Assembly was set up in Pankisi Gorge after the part of the members of the Elders" Union did not attend the rally against the construction of the HPP.
The gorge does not rule out that certain groups have influenced the decision of the elders, but the elders claim the opposite.
From the special operation that took place in Temirlan Machalikashvili"s home, the opinions of the vast majority of the population of the valley and elders were different from each other. The issue of creation of an alternative union of elders was reached on Friday when part of the Elders Council members did not attend the protest against the construction of a new HPP.
The Pankisi people can not yet speak, but say that young people should join the new association with the elders.
