Khatuna Lagazidze: The goal of the ruling party is to destroy the entire political field of Georgia
If until recently we talked about a one-party parliament, today, unfortunately, we already have to talk about one-party Georgia. This is what the Georgian Dream announced today.
The goal of the ruling party is clear – to destroy the entire political field of Georgia. After all, look what happens. Those who enter parliament by this step will politically commit suicide. And on those who refuse, Georgian Dream diligently hangs the label of the National Movement. And at the same time, it threatens the National Movement itself by multiplying them by zero through the courts. What was said by the Georgian Dream does not fit into any framework. They are going to deprive half a million citizens of Georgia of the right to vote. Even the most frostbitten dictators do not allow themselves to admit this.
What’s going on now? First of all, we should be grateful to those ambassadors who took the trouble to be facilitators in such difficult negotiations between the government and the opposition. This Sisyphean work is definitely not their responsibility, and it is clear that their main task is to preserve at least the appearance of Georgia’s democratic facade. An interesting point is whether such a motley opposition as ours deserved their trust. The main task of the opposition today is to save face both in front of its voters and in front of our Western partners. Today we have unjustifiably ambitious politicians, but there are no justifiably ambitious concepts for the country’s development.
Even in such a situation, we are not sure that part of the opposition will not give up moral principles and will not enter parliament.
