Giorgi Kandelaki accuses ruling party of trying to block Gigi Tsereteli’s candidacy in the 2016 election of OSCE Parliamentary Assembly President

The European Georgia faction has published an agreement signed between the Georgian Dream party and one of the lobbying companies in the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly.

As one of the leaders of the party, Giorgi Kandelaki stated at the press conference, the agreement shows that the ruling party gave instructions to the lobbying company at the expense of the state budget.

According to Giorgi Kandelaki, the ruling party, instead of solving the problem of country's occupation and other important issues, issued an order to block Gigi Tsereteli’s candidacy in the 2016 election of the President of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, as well as to discredit the opposition and to stop criticism of the authorities.

Kandelaki called the above anti-state action, which is “badly reflected in the relations with our international partners”.
