Irakli Kobakhidze: Only those non-governmental organizations that distance themselves from political demands and are not caught out in falsifying things should be involved in the work process around the 12 recommendations

According to Irakli Kobakhidze, the chairman of Georgian Dream, only those non-governmental organizations that distance themselves from political demands and that are not caught out in falsifying things should be involved in the working process around 12 recommendations.

"Those who declare solidarity with NGO who is falsifying PVT and voicing political demands, naturally have no place in the work process. Therefore, the work process that will take place around the 12 points is very well filtered. This is a very logical process. Only those non-governmental organizations that distance themselves from political demands and that are not caught out in falsifying things should be involved in the working process around the 12 points," said Kobakhidze.

When asked whether the fact that GYLA, Transparency International Georgia and ISFED will not be involved in the working group will cause a problem, Kobakhidze said that the mentioned three organizations are neither civil sector nor civil organization.

"Civil society is not only the richest NGOs. We know that there are three richest NGOs in Georgia. These are: Transparency Inte­rnational Georgia, GY­LA and ISF­ED. They are often called the non-governmental sector, public organizations, when there are only three organizations that are neither competent nor honest. For us, civil society is all those people who have special professional skills and qualities. Of course, such people will be involved in the work process, but these three richest NGOs are in no way civil sector or civil society," said Irakli Kobakhidze.
