Let us remind that today the Parliament of Georgia conducts a vote of confidence to the new Cabinet, headed by Nika Gilauri (named the PM after Grigol Mgaloblishvili's resignation). According to the Georgian legislation, in case of PM's resignation the President must name the Cabinet to the Parliament for a vote of confidence.
Jondi Bagaturia, the leader of Kartuli Dasi party, left the chamber before the voting and urged other opposition MPs to follow his example. "I listened to it - in the morning there was a very constructive talk of only virtual success. One year ago the President and his government presented the same program, and it failed to prove its value", Bagaturia said. The MP noticed that he is against not some persons in the government but against "disrespect and lie". "The President presented the same governmental program that has already ruined the country", he said.
Magda Onikashvili, the representative of the Christian Democrats said that the fraction didn't support the new Cabinet and the program. "We see nothing brand new in the proposed changes and cannot support this government", Onikashvili said.
It is worthy noticing that the governing party of Georgia (the United National Movement) occupies 120 mandates in the 150-seat Parliament..
