Opposition MPs leave plenary session in protest

The parliamentary opposition has left the plenary session hall. The plenary sitting of the Parliament was resumed without members of the "European Georgia" and "National Movement".

The session was suspended for several minutes due to the clash at the session hall.

The opposition “European Georgia” party demanded discussion of the draft resolution on resignation of Interior Minister Giorgi Gakharia due to the 20-21 June developments o Rustaveli Avenue. But the lawmakers from the ruling “Georgian Dream” party rejected the request of the opposition and the dispute between them turned into the clash.
