Georgia has no ruling coalition anymore
Tbilisi, Georgia, Nov.5
By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:
Apparently, the ruling Georgian Dream coalition no longer exists, Georgian expert Sandro Tvalchrelidze told Trend on Nov.5 commenting on the latest resignations in the country's government.
The expert said today Georgia is experiencing a deep political crisis, adding that not the team of former Defense Minister Irakli Alasania, but Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili is the perpetuator of what happened.
"It is obvious that the coalition no longer exists. It will be good if the parliamentary majority doesn't disintegrate," he said.
Tvalchrelidze said the Georgian Dream coalition had no chance to exist for a long time.
"If a minister from the coalition is dismissed, then a member from the same coalition should replace him. And when the highest-rated politician is dismissed from the post, evidently, it is a result of political conspiracy," the expert said.
"Here is a simple lesson - new ideas shouldn't be realized with old methods," the expert said adding that accession to EU and NATO is possible by pursuing an open policy.
Following the meeting of the political council of the Georgian Dream bloc on Nov.4, Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili announced the dismissal of Defense Minister Irakli Alasania. Alasania's friend and colleague, the State Minister of Georgia for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Alexi Petriashvili resigned as well.
Earlier on Nov.5, Maia Panjikidze resigned from the post of Georgia's foreign minister. Aside from Panjikidze, her deputies - David Zalkaliani, Tamar Beruchashvili and David Jalagania - also resigned.
