Levan Ioseliani: The President has the right to enter everywhere and talk to everyone

According to the Public Defender, Levan Ioseliani, the President has the right to enter everywhere and talk to everyone.

The Ombudsman told journalists about this when he answered the question why Salome Zurabishvili was not allowed to speak with students at Tbilisi State University within the framework of the campaign - "Our Voice for Europe" yesterday.

"The President has the right to enter everywhere and has the right to meet with everyone. I can't say anything about this specific case, who refused and for what purpose. I have no information," said Ioseliani.

For information, the President of Georgia Salome Zurabishvili criticized Tbilisi State University Rector Jaba Samushia and said that he forbids students to set up a table and sign a petition.

As the President noted, we should get used to the fact that politics is one thing, and state interests are another, and it should be free in all areas.

TSU rector Jaba Samushia denied the President's accusation in a conversation with IPN.

However, later, the President of Georgia Salome Zurabishvili arrived near Tbilisi State University and met the students. At the entrance of the first building of Tbilisi State University, a banner with the inscription: "Our voice for Europe" was installed, there is also a table with papers, where students had the opportunity to sign the petition. The President spoke to the students and observed the process of signing the petition.
