National accord to be simple without criminal force in politics, GD Chairman says
National accord to be simple without criminal force in politics, GD Chairman says

The ruling Georgian Dream (GD) party Chair Irakli Kobakhidze believes “the only way to reduce polarization is to weaken the criminal political force [UNM].”

Remarking on the Georgian President’s recent initiative, aiming to reconcile various political parties in Georgia to end polarization, he said: “We spare no effort to weaken this party [UNM] maximally in future. This party must end. That is the way to overcome the polarization. The national accord will be much easier when the criminal political force is no longer a part of the political system.”

GD Chair said that “it is the President’s prerogative to lead this process [national accord] as she indicated it,” while the Georgian Dream thinks “criminals and crimes need to be assessed in line with the rule of law.”

He claims, “it is important to call each thing by its right name, assess the past properly, lead the processes as is due.”

“It is difficult to talk about the future when you call politically persecuted a person [Mikheil Saakashvili], who committed many crimes in the country for nine years and afterwards,” Kobakhidze noted.
