Bidzina Ivanishvili (Chairman of Georgian Dream-Democratic Georgia Party) is legitimately involved in political processes, and the opposition keeps speculating. Eearlier they were saying “why he is involved”, now they are saying “why he is not involved”, it is political hypocrisy, – Parliament Speaker Archil Talakvadze said.
Talakvadze commented about the statement made by Congressman Markwayne Mullin, who called Bidzina Ivanisvhili a formal ruler of the country and an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“The last few months have once again demonstrated to our society and partners that Georgia has a democratic system of governance. The country is governed by institutions and public politicians who hold public office.
As for the chairman of the party, Mr. Bidzina Ivanishvili is legitimately involved in the political processes as the chairman of the party, like the chairmen of other ruling political parties do in Europe. So, we can directly say that the opposition, and especially the old opposition, keeps speculating,” Talakvadze claimed.
