Majority Lawmaker Vano Zardiashvili Renounces MP Mandate

MP Vano Zardiashvili, a member of the parliamentary majority, has renounced his MP mandate, releasing a statement on Monday, saying that some people had been carrying out “black PR” against him.  

“The truth is on my side in this particular case, however, there is my family and my team behind me and I really do not want to be a source of provocation for people or political groups trying to damage the positive processes by throwing mud at me. I decided to leave the Parliament of Georgia and renounce the mandate of the MP. By taking this step, I once again show to the public that a job is just a means to serve your country and each citizen. I would like to thank each member of our team and wish them success in the development of the country,” the statement reads.

His decision came after the recent confrontation with the former MP of Ruling Party Georgian Dream Eka Beselia at the Sitting of the Legal Issues Committee at the Parliament of Georgia. The confrontation between the two occurred when the Majority MP commented on Beselia’s moral while the lawmaker Gedevan Popkhadze was interviewing one of the judicial candidates. After the tense conversation between Zardiashvili and Beselia, the latter hit the lawmaker in his face, calling him a “villain” and other offensive epithets.
