Free Democrats Resign: “Georgia’s Western Course under Threat”

Author: Zviad Adzinbaia

Members of The Free Democrats (FD), the second oppositional party after United National Movement (UNM) in Georgian Parliament, have resigned from their parliamentary committee chairs.

In a statement released by FD, the Chair of the Financial-Budgetary Committee, Davit Onoprishvili, Chair of the Euro-Integration Committee, Viktor Dolidze, and Head of the Environment Protection Committee, Giorgi Tsagareishvili, are said to have left their positions on their own accord. 

Zurab Abashidze, one of the leaders of FD and the Georgian PM’s special representative in relations with Russia, was dismissed from the Vice-Speaker position last week and replaced by GD-allied Gubaz Sanikidze.

Following the above events, another leader of The Free Democrats, Alexi Petriashvili, has stated that Georgia’s Euro-Atlantic course is under threat. His claims were based on a statement by Abashidze which suggested that Georgia has no perspective of becoming a NATO member in “one day or even two.”

“Our cooperation does not involve placing NATO military infrastructure in Georgia. There is no such plan,” said Abashidze. “NATO will not take such a step, since it would threaten regional security. The occupation of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali represents the primary threat for Georgia’s territorial integrity.”
