UNM to enter Georgia's parliament after six-month political standoff
Georgia's opposition United National Movement (UNM) members will take up their parliamentary mandates after almost a six-month boycott, party chair Nika Melia has announced after the party’s political council meeting yesterday.
"We have made the right decision at the moment," Nika Melia announced, adding that his party will spare no efforts to fight with former ruling Georgian Dream party chair Bidzina Ivanishvili’s oligarchy.
However, Melia noted that his party will not sign the EU-mediated document despite their respect to the foreign dignitaries, Agenda.ge reported.
In mid-April, the Georgian ruling party and the part of opposition signed the EU-mediated agreement after the six-month political deadlock following the 2020 parliamentary elections.
Although some of the political parties have entered the parliament after signing the agreement UNM, European Georgia and Labour party refused to do so.
