Mikheil Saakashvili: By introducing the Russian law, Ivanishvili wants to mess up the situation - we must be united, firm and not allow the law to be passed

Now by introducing this Russian law, Ivanishvili wants to mess up the situation. We must be united, firm, and we must neither pass the law nor allow it to be disturbed, - the third president of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili, writes on the social network, thus responding to the re-initiation of the draft law "On the transparency of foreign influence" by the parliamentary majority in the parliament.

The former president calls this bill a provocation.

"As for the provocation of the 'Foreign Agents Act,' The Dream knows their reign is coming to an end. They destroyed the economy, drove up prices, forced hundreds of thousands of Georgians to leave their homeland.

Now by introducing this Russian law, Ivanishvili wants to mess up the situation. We must be united, firm, and we must not allow the law to be taken away, nor to be disturbed. We should go to the elections strengthened. "Let's bring in a new government that will rid us of poverty and hopelessness together with the dream," Saakashvili wrote.

For information, the parliamentary majority will again initiate the draft law "On the transparency of foreign influence" in the parliament. According to the leader of the parliamentary majority, Mamuka Mdinaradze, the draft law will be introduced in the Parliament of Georgia with exactly the same text as it was introduced last year, with the only difference - instead of the term "agent of foreign influence" the term "organization carrying the interests of a foreign power" will be used, all other notes of the draft law are unchanged.
