Kirtadze wants to leave the Labor Party
Today, international secretary of the opposition Labor Party of Georgia Nestan Kirtadze stated that she intends to leave this political structure. As reported by "Georgia-News", Kirtadze this is due to unacceptable position of the party leader in respect of billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili.
"I totally unaccept the statements which made the party leader Shalva Natelashili in respect of Ivanishvili. I consider the statement against Bidzina Ivanishvili as indirect support for the current regime. They help the country's authorities to continue to terrorize their own people", explained Kirtadze in an interview.
"I told him (Natelashvili) in all sincerity that I do not support his statement with regard to Ivanishvili" - added Kirtadze. According to her, statement on withdrawal from the party will be made in the near future.
Earlier today, yet the international secretary of the Georgian Labor Party announced that her meeting with businessman Bidzina Ivanishvili is scheduled for the near future.
"I will meet and will cooperate with all forces which would finally end the long struggle of the Georgian people with violence, social injustice and terror. I will cooperate with all who would prevent the destruction of the Georgian state. I will cooperate with those who will return dignity, smile, faith in the future to the Georgian people and give a real chance to the democratic development of the country, who will switch the country from confrontational mode with Russia for a peaceful dialogue and cooperation regime, whose main task will be to restore the territorial integrity and national unity, and returning the country into the European mainstream", the GHN quoted Kirtadze. "It is my right and my duty!", she added.
On the question of whether she is talking about Bidzina Ivanishvili, Kirtadze said: "The man who was involved in Georgian affairs, built a temple of the Millennium, who was called a self-portrait of the Georgian people by our Patriarch, the man who saved our intelligentsia from starvation, which created a model of social harmony in Sachkhere, yes, he will be a force, the guide, who will be able to realize "the Georgian dream" together with the Georgian people", said the representative of the Georgian Labour Party.
