GD Chair vows 'radical opponents' destructive actions not to veer GD off 12-point plan

The ruling Georgian Dream (GD) party Chair, Irakli Kobakhidze, Monday said the linked “radical opposition” and the NGOs responded to the GD’s fresh plan to meet EC’s 12 recommendations with “destructive actions.”

However, Kobakhidze pledged the opponents’ actions would not veer the team off the plan. In lieu, “Georgian Dream will meticulously pull off each point, with necessary steps and formats in due course.”

Kobakhidze responded to the remarks by the People’s Movement ‘Home to Europe’ leader, Shota Digmelashvili, at a Sunday rally, hinting at the usage of “the weapons of non-violent resistance like in Serbia, Ukraine, elsewhere, where autocracy was overthrown with no violence.”

GD Chair believes “plotting revolution without people’s support is a no-go.” “They have no resources, for one simple reason, people do not back them,” he went on.

Yesterday, the People’s Movement anew demanded: “Bidzina Ivanishvili [GD founder] to relinquish executive power at a historically important moment for Georgia, and hand it over to the National Consent Government in the constitutional setting.”
