State of Emergency Lifted in Georgia

There was a state of emergency in Georgia?

Georgia’s government lifted a state of emergency as promised today, nine days after the emergency was imposed following a crackdown on anti-government protests. The crackdown and emergency drew harsh Western criticism of a country considered to be one of the region’s most democratic.

Boy everyone's just protesting their little hearts out all over the world ain't they? Sales of signs on sticks must be through the fucking roof. Can I buy stock?

Shortly after the move today, which was meant to restore political rights and allow some private media to function, President Mikheil Saakashvili announced a government reshuffle, appointing Lado Gurgenidze, the head of the Bank of Georgia, as prime minister, replacing Zurab Nogaideli, Georgian and Russian news agencies reported.

Oh, ok...I don't know either of those gentlemen.
