Speaker send open address to European MPs
Speaker of the parliament of Georgia, Davit Usupashvili commented on his letter to the European Parliament signees of the March 6 letter to Bidzina Ivanishvili right after his arrival to the United States.
`I addressed the European colleagues to impose as high standards of democracy to Georgia as possible and they should not exemplify Saakashvili as the best model of democracy. This is the shame of Europe and Georgia. So we agree criticism to our activities and in many cases, we may be reproached, but not with the statements that three months ago democracy was flourishing in Georgia and since we came to the power, we are pulling down these standards. Unfortunately, for many years the same persons were only applauding to the government of Georgia. We don`t need applauds, but we demand impartiality and good knowledge of situation,` Davit Usupashvili said.
In the interview with Rustavi 2, Davit Usupashvili said that in the open address he called on the European parliamentarians to abstain from signing the documents based on falsehood.
`You reside in Europe and yet you distance yourselves from Europe by supporting Saakashvilis former police regime. This way, you probably will not hurt Europe itself, yet my small country may become yet another victim, falling prey to such Europeans,` the letter sent to European parliamentarians says.
With this address, speaker has responded to the members of the European Parliament, who sent an open address to Georgian Prime Minister a few days ago.
