Nika Melia to reject MP mandate

The Chairman of the United National Movement is stepping down from the parliament.

According to Nika Melia, he will be fully involved in the election process together with Elene Khoshtaria, “in order to make the defeat of the Georgian Dream official in the October referendum”.

As for the other members of the party who entered the legislature, Melia said that he appealed to the representatives of the UNM to stay in the Parliament in order to complete the constitutional changes.

“After winning the referendum, this legislature will be dissolved and Georgia will have a new legitimate Parliament elected by the Georgian people. I am leaving my MP mandate, but at my request, despite resistance within the team, technically and formally, our friends will remain in the parliament at this stage”, - said the Chairperson of the UNM.
