The US Ambassador to Georgia, Kelly Degnan, considers it important for Chairman of the United National Movement Nika Melia to be in parliament and participate in the democratic process. Kelly Degnan said she hopes that would happen.
“The details of these should be left to the political leaders to decide. It is not for the United States to decide something like that. And it is not for the United States to decide what Mr Melia decides to do. He is the leader of the largest opposition party, party that has very important place and, I think, it would be very important for him to be in parliament, and to be participating in the democratic process and representing his voters. So, I hope that this would happen,” Kelly Degnan told journalists.
Nika Melia, the Chairman of the United National Movement, addressed the representatives of the opposition who signed the European Council President Charles Michel-brokered document. Melia urges them “not to take part in the infamous attempt to rewrite history, which is called June 20 Gavrilov’s night amnesty.”
Nika Melia also addressed the document-signatory Georgian Dream urging to retract the amnesty bill.
