Japaridze: Burchuladze Was Blackmailing me

He was blackmailing me. He told me that if Girchi wasn’t able to raise enough money, I won’t specify how much, then they would remove us from the electoral list, and of course I said no. I refused to remain on the list. He was asking for money and I’m quite sure that it wasn't for the bloc, but rather for his own personal use. This is the truth and everything else that Burchuladze had said since is delusional.


Zurab Japaridze, leader of political party Gichi, on why his party left Paata Burchuladze’s bloc. Paata Burchuladze has however alleged that Girchi was removed from the coalition's electoral list because they received funds from Bidzina Ivanishvili.
