GD’s decision to walk away from April 19 agreement to be abdication of responsibility, Senator Risch says

U.S. Senator Jim Risch (R-Idaho), ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, echoed Georgian Dream’s decision to quit the EU-brokered deal.

Senator Risch believes “Georgian Dream’s decision to walk away from the April 19 agreement is an abdication of gov’t responsibility, and seems to indicate that the party only cares about its own future – not that of the entire country. The people of Georgia deserve better.”

Earlier today, the ruling Georgian Dream party chair Irakli Kobakhidze dubbed the EU-brokered April 19 Agreement as annulled, saying it completed its mission and exhausted itself 100 days after signing as the majority of opposition figures having abstained from joining.

The ruling party and the part of the opposition signed the EU-mediated agreement following the six-month political stalemate following the 2020 parliamentary elections. United National Movement’s bloc, Alliance of Patriots, European Georgia, and Labor party rebuff to do so.
