Bidzina Ivanishvili says Eka Beselia went against the principle of team and therefore the issue of electing her as Deputy Chairwoman of Parliament was removed from the agenda

According to Bidzina Ivanishvili, taking into consideration Eka Beselia's attitude towards the team, it is absolutely natural that the issue of electing her as Deputy Chairwoman of Parliament was removed from the agenda.

“I would like to confirm that the decision on the resignation of Eka Beselia was made in the summer.

This decision was related to the difficulties emerged in the ruling team in 2017, which I named as one of the main reasons for my return to politics - that was he lack of teamwork.

In this context, it is unfortunate that Eka Beselia related the decision made in the summer of last year to the selection of judges. The decisions made by her after resignation were even more incomprehensible – by not submitting an application to the Parliamentary Bureau for a few days and by electing Gedevan Popkhadze as First Deputy of the Chairman of Committee through grossly violating the Rules of Parliament, she went against the principle of the team and teamwork”, reads the statement released by Bidzina Ivanishvili today.
