Conflict between the Georgian Labor Party and opposition tycoon Bidzina Ivanishvili continues in the new year. Party leader Shalva Naletashvili said that for the businessman the common people - it's "disposable mass" and promised together with President Saakashvili to "root out" him from the political field the republic.


Confrontation between eccentric Shalva Natelashvili and Bidzina Ivanishvili began in October. Disgraced tycoon accused laborists of "psuedo opposition nature of their activity" and Natelashvili responded: the businessman is actually "a new project of Washington". "They decided to take measures to finally prevent the national forces and specifically the Labor Party from the coming to power in Georgia", said Natelashvili, adding that Ivanishvili has always financed the current government of Georgia. According to the opposition leader, the businessman's billions are stored in the U.S. and European banks, which would provide "American masters the power of this individual in Georgia".

A month later, when the laborists called people to come to a rally in support of revolution in the country, Ivanishvili answered his vis-a-vis. He said he would not come to protest because he didn't support the idea of ​​radical regime change in the country. "Radical developments is in the interests of the government", he said. "I affirm once again that we remain true to the idea of ​​regime change through elections".

Obviously, being guided by these principles, in mid-December, Ivanishvili created a political coalition with the opposition "Free Democrats" and "Republicans" which do not share radical views. The reaction to this step was controversial. That time even GeorgiaTimes' interlocutors differed in their assessments. Thus, the leader of the party "Imedi" Irina Sarishvili said that these political forces will not help the businessman. Political scientist Ramaz Sakvarelidze said that these parties will be able to bring some benefit. The expert added that it was important to Ivanishvili to rally the opponents of the current government; otherwise the opposition electorate would split.
