A majoritarian MP Bidzina Gegidze has been dismissed from the ruling Georgian Dream-Democratic Georgia (GDDG) party. The ruling party made a decision at the meeting on Sunday, September 1.
The GDDG MP Gia Volski said following yesterday’s meeting that there are some issues in which the ruling party and Gegidze had different positions, including the suspension of MP mandate to Nika Melia of the United National Movement and the selection of supreme court judges, finally leading to his dismissal.
On his part, Bidzina Gegidze, who has been the member of GDDG since 2016, said he did not attend the Sunday meeting. Nevertheless, he said the decision of his dismissal was not a surprise, and that he will retain critical positions towards [the ruling party] anyway.
