Davitishvili: Ivanishvili Would Not Seek Retribution If Elected

In his interview to Kviris Palitra Koba Davitashvili, leader of People’s Party talked about Bidzina Ivanishvili’s appearance in politics. He criticised some opposition forces for their severe statement towards Ivanishvili and said that Ivanishvili was only criticised after he came into politics and made some unfavourable statements against the government, but before he did so he was welcomed by government and opposition.

“There is no person in the world who is loved by everyone and that includes Ivanishvili, but he introduced a new reality in Georgian politics,” he said. According to him Ivanishvili has a high rating among the population and the reason for this is that people do not feel a threat from him and they have a positive attitude towards him. Davitashvili says that people know that if Ivanishvili comes into power he will not take revenge and will not think that how his predecessors should be punished.

“If Saakashvili wants to stay in the history books he should allow a change in power in a democratic way. He will be in history as the father of democracy if he does so,” Davitashvili said.
