About 25 activists from the Gurjaani branch of the ruling coalition Georgian Dream have announced their defection from the party for joining the election campaign of presidential candidate Nino Burjanadze.
One of the defected members of the Kakheti branch of the party Gia Khelashvili says the main reason of their dissatisfaction is the presidential candidate nominated by the Georgian Dream. He doubts that Giorgi Margvelashvili will not be able to solve Georgia`s problems on international level.
The GD members have commented on the defection of the party members. They say the main achievement of Georgia`s new government is the freedom of choice and political visions.
Chairperson of the procedural issues committee of the parliament Irina Imerlishvili says the reports are untrue, though she confirmed defection only of two members from GD branch in Lanchkhuti branch to Burjanadze`s party.
