Jondi Bagaturia refused to listen to the President' s report

2009-02-13 09:51

Jondi Bagaturia, the Georgian MP outside fraction, left the hall of meetings as soon as the President came to present his annual report.


According to Bagaturia, he rose to order and asked for the time in the debates, implied by the regulations, to tell Mikheil Saakashvili all the truth.

"But, as it turned out, neither the President nor the Speaker needed my truth, and therefore I state I leave the hall of meetings as a protest", Bagaturia said.

On February 11th Davit Bakradze, the Speaker of the Parliament, said that according to the regulations, MPs outside fractions have no right to participate in debates. However, at the yesterday's meeting of the bureau the decision was made that they will be given 5 minutes, despite the limitations. The important aspect was: they had to choose one to make a statement for all (there are 4 MPs outside fractions).

As it turned out, Jondi Bagaturia wasn't satisfied with this concession, and he refused to hear the report. For the first time for several years Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia, hadn't left the Parliament right after the presentation of the report and stayed to participate in the debates on his report.
