Zurab Japaridze to run for the Didube-Chughureti majoritarian district. He wrote about this decision on his Facebook-page.
“Couple of weeks ago we decided to drop out of the inter-oppositional process of selection coordinated candidates. This decision was determined by our desire of facilitating agreement on mutual candidates. I have publicly affirmed my support for Elene Khoshtaria in Vake majoritarian district and I remain committed to this decision.
But the process of agreement on common opposition candidates has been stretched in time and Girchi decided to get involved in majoritarian elections.
I have decided to run for a majoritarian candidate in Tbilisi, Didube-Chughureti on behalf of Girchi. Several opposition leaders already confirmed their goodwill towards my decision.
I hope that this goodwill will turn into political support from the part of opposition. My competitor from the “Soviet Georgia Dream” in Didube-Chughureti will be Gia Volski whom I challenge from this moment onwards for public discussion about any relevant topics, whether it is economy or deoccupation, at any platform, any date and in any format”, - writes Zurab Japaridze.
