The “United National Movement” Khashuri Majority Deputy candidate Sergo
Khitiashvili talked about reasons of his decision to withdraw his candidacy on
the briefing held in the central office of the party.
According to him the mentioned
decision was a result of a pressure carried out by political opponents.
“No matter of repeated warns
sent to political opponents to refrain from violence, blackmailing, physical
and verbal abuses, unfortunately, open aggression continues as towards my
staff, as well as towards the precinct election commission members. In these
conditions our work in Khashuri is impossible, therefore, I together with my
friends made a decision to refuse to participate in the elections. I hope not a
single fact of violence will be left without reaction and will be followed by
legal actions”, - Sergo Kitiashvili said.
The movement refrains from any
additional comment for this stage.
