The Mayor of Tbilisi responds to the criticism of the opposition regarding the price of New Year Tree.
"We have one of the most beautiful Christmas trees and most sparkling lights in the city. It does not matter what left-wingers say; Tbilisi is one of the most tastefully decorated cities," the Mayor said in his statement released in response to criticism by the opposition, who disapproved of the pricey tree.
"We should have expected anything from the opposition, despite my repeated appeals to put politics aside for a while. They could have enjoyed themselves in our beautifully decorated city," Mayor Kaladze said and added that the only thing that matters is the satisfaction expressed by the public. The Mayor also stressed that he did not expect that the opposition would have politicized the New Year.
