Will International Community Support Ivanishvili-Alasania-Republican Alliance?

Member of the Free Democrats, MP Gia Tsagareishvili, says that if the authorities continue pressuring businessman Bidzina Ivanishvili, the international community will have to respond, Mteli Kvira writes.

In his interview to the paper Tsagareishvili also commented on the separation of the political alliance the Opposition Six. “We have left the political Six because we were confident that this political alliance was not effective and had no successful results. If you promise a person something and do a totally different thing this is unacceptable for us. That is why I think that you should be brave enough to admit that this project failed. We will continue our way forward and if anyone wants to follow us they are welcome. Mr. Alasania has several times underlined those problems which were more or less not clear for society. We considered that it was unfair towards our supporters to work with a group where we had no success,” Tsagareishvili said.
