"I intend to conduct a dramatically contradictory policy to that of the "Georgian dream", during my presidential campaign," he noted.
Davitashvili thanked the leader of coalition, Bidzina Ivanishvili for that, he provided the victory of the opposition in parliamentary elections on October 1, 2012 and expressed his hope that, they will be able to oppose within political dialogue.
On August 1, the Tbilisi City Court found the ex-Defense Minister of Georgia Bacho Akhalaia innocent on an episode of torture and ill-treatment of commandos.
The court found that the commandos passed the ordinary survival program and they were not subjected to torture because of their political views.
Despite of the acquittal, Akhalia remains in prison. He is also being accused of abuse of power during a prison riot, while he was chairing the Department for the execution of punishments, and also for suppression of several citizens' freedoms.
