“Unfortunately, we could not hear any arguments that would strengthen Giorgi Gakharia’s position.” – Irakli Kobakhidze
Chairman of the Georgian Dream party, Irakli Kobakhidze, spoke today at a briefing following Giorgi Gakharia’s resignation from the post of Prime Minister in connection with UNM Chairman Nika Melia’s case.
Kobakhidze noted that, “A country where law enforcement is not ensured, cannot establish itself as a state.”
“Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia decided to resign. It is unfortunate that he made such a decision. He had a different position on the court decision against Nikanor Melia from other members of the team. However, unfortunately, we could not hear any arguments that would strengthen his position.”
“With the resignation of the Prime Minister, the Minister of Internal Affairs took the completely logical decision to temporarily postpone the arrest of Nikanor Melia,” Kobakhidze added. “We call on Nikanor Melia to obey the law. Otherwise, the government will apply law enforcement and make the arrest,” he finished.
