Irakli Kobakhidze: Salome Zurabishvili became President with the billboards of Bidzina Ivanishvili - she can spoil something with her statements, but she cannot spoil much, therefore, she can stay in her message box, which coincides with the message box of the National Movement

We have a parliamentary republic, the President can spoil something in this system with her statements, but she cannot spoil much. Therefore, she can stay in her message box, which directly coincides with the message box of the National Movement, Irakli Kobakhidze, hairman of the Georgian Dream, said on PalitraNews.

According to the majority leader, President Salome Zurabishvili “has made her choice."

As Irakli Kobakhidze noted, Salome Zurabishvili became President with the billboards of the founder of the Georgia­n Dream party, Bidzina Ivanishvili.

"Salome Zurabishvili has made her choice. She constantly makes unsubstantiated allegations against the ruling team and has now announced that she will veto all laws. We’ve had a lot of meetings, but she finds it hard to believe things at times, even the simple truths. We have been giving her much information, sometimes more than we share with our own team members, but she does not believe it and that’s her problem. This disbelief prevented her from analyzing things.

We all remember that Salome Zurabishvili became the President with Bidzina Ivanishvili's billboards. I and other team leaders were also on these billboards.

We have a parliamentary republic, the President can spoil something in this system with her statements, but she cannot spoil much. Therefore, she can stay in her message box, which directly coincides with the message box of the National ­Movement. However, talking about being under the influence of the National ­Movement is just funny, as the National ­Movement does not have the resources for it, but the fact is that they have the same message box," said Irakli Kobakhidze.
