Bendukidze calls on education minister to resign
Chairperson of the supervisory board of the Georgian Agrarian University, Kakha Bendukidze calls on the Minister of Education to resign. Bendukidze was invited to the Position political talk-show on Tuesday, where he accused Minister Giorgi Margvelashvili of lies and illegal decisions while discussing the suspension of authorization to the Agrarian University.
`I want to tell him that he is a liar and a shameful person and if I were in his place, I would resign, because a person like him cannot be a minister. Such improper work is unacceptable for the ministry of education,` Bendukidze said.
Giorgi Margvelashvili downplayed Bendukidze`s arguments, saying he was not going to take his advice and resign.
`We have dragged this country from the hands of Bendukidze, Adeishvili and Merabishvili and I now, to resign because Bendukidze is saying so, is a bit ridiculous. If the university wants to continue its work, they should uproot the gaps they have and submit a statement on authorization again,` Education Minister said.
