Saakashvili financed his own son from the budget, I didn’t spend a single tetri from the budget for my son or any member of my family, this is the main difference - Garibashvili

Mikheil Saakashvili financed his own son from the budget, I didn’t spend a single tetri from the budget for my son or any member of my family, this is the main difference. Such a statement made today the Prime Minister of Georgia.

“I have never used a budget and financed my personal or my family’s travel or anything else. Not a single tetri was spent from the budget either on my travel or on my family’s trips. Unlike your leader [Mikheil] Saakashvili.

I deliberately, purposely did this, I purposely made my family to pay it to show the contrast, the difference in the handwriting of our Government, that we never use the budget as a personal family budget, and to show the other extreme, which reigned here 10 years ago, when for their own personal purposes Saakashvili and his criminal gang spent millions of GEL.

My family is well-off, I have never been poor. After I graduated from the university, even before politics, I worked with the richest man in this country and managed the richest fund.

My family has never been in poverty, it’s not hidden and it’s not news. I am embarrassed to speak about this, but since you ask me, I will answer you.

My family has relevant proven incomes, financial resources, everything is transparent. If you have any questions, I fill out the declaration every year, wait for the next declaration. I have nothing hidden”, - said Irakli Garibashvili.
