Ivanishvili: Taking the speaker's chair by Gavrilov has been an “error in protocol” and not Kobakhidze’s mistake

Taking the speaker's chair by Gavrilov has been an “error in protocol”, while Kobakhidze covered the team,- Bidzina Ivanishvili, the Chairman of the Ruling "Georgian Dream", told reporters in Batumi on Wednesday.

According to him, the former chairman of the parliament did not commit any offense, but he looked into the situation and left the mandate and the "National Movement" wants resignation of the Interior Minister.

“Kobakhidze has not committed any crime. The “National Movement” has managed to provoke the situation. Taking the speaker's chair by Gavrilov has been an “error in protocol”. It was not Kobakhidze’s mistake. It was followed by a fair protest from the society. Kobakhidze looked into the situation, he covered the team and left his mandate. Gakharia [Interior Minister] is even better man, he will not fight for post at all. Gakharia’s resignation, the “National Movement” wants today, means that tomorrow, they will arrive at the Parliament, and there must not be police officers there and the violators must be able to enter the Palriament’s building freely,” Ivanishvili said.
