Former Georgian Dream MPs of Ex-Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia’s team, who recently left the parliamentary majority, are to sign the compromise document proposed by President of the European Council Charles Michel.
Giorgi Khojevanishvili, Ana Buchukuri, Beka Liluashvili and Shalva Kereselidze, will sign the text of the agreement today. Regarding the remaining two – Alexandre Motserelia is not in Tbilisi, while Mikheil Daushvili has contracted coronavirus.
The office of EU Delegation to Georgia is open to all elected Members of Parliament who have not yet signed the Agreement Document.
Representatives of a political party can come to the EU office both individually and on behalf of the party and sign the 5-point document proposed by Charles Michel.
For the record, former Georgian Dream MPs of former Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia’s team, Giorgi Khojevanishvili, Alexandre Motserelia, Beka Liluashvili, Shalva Kereselidze, Mikheil Daushvili and Ana Buchukuri, have left the ruling party, noting that “they are former Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia’s team and share the same values.”
Gakharia resigned as PM on February 18 due to differences of opinion about the arrest of Nika Melia, the leader of the National Movement.
The ruling team and a part of the opposition parties have signed the new agreement presented by Michel yesterday, April 19. The official signing ceremony took place at Orbeliani Palace in Tbilisi, while the mediator himself attended it virtually.
At this stage, the document is signed by opposition parties ‘Lelo,’ ‘Citizens,’ ‘Republicans,’ ‘Strategy Builder,’ ‘Girchi’ and ruling party ‘Georgian Dream.’
The President of the European Council will visit Georgia today.
