New Rights: Patarkatsishvili ‘Not Serious’

Tycoon Badri Patarkatsishvili’s decision to remain in the presidential race, despite an earlier announcement that he planned to withdraw, is “not serious,” MP Mamuka Katsitadze of the New Rights Party said. New Rights party leader Davit Gamkrelidze is also contesting the January 5 election.

“I think that it is confusing and irresponsible to change positions so frequently,” MP Katsitadze told Civil.Ge. “This is not serious.”

On December 26 Gamkrelidze said Patarkatsishvili had made a mistake in becoming so actively engaged in politics.

The comment raised eyebrows, considering the New Rights’ unsuccessful attempt to persuade Patarkatsishvili to run on the party ticket in the Tbilisi mayoral election in October 2006.
