Roman Gotsiridze, a former MP of the United National Movement opposition - the largest opposition group in the country - on Wednesday said he “no longer” saw himself as the party member, following his decision last week to quit the party.
He noted intra-party controversy continued in the UNM and he was “unable” to mediate for reconciliation.
The MP expressed hope the party would stop its boycott to the parliamentary work its newly elected head Levan Khabeishvili announced on February 6, in response to the court’s denial to grant former president Mikheil Saakashvili’s release on health grounds.
Gotsiridze stressed the opposition's boycott was “comfortable” to the ruling party and allowed it adopt the laws that were in its “political and economic interests”.
Several UNM members quit party posts following Nika Melia’s defeat as the UNM chair earlier this year.
