Giorgi Gachechiladze: Green Party to be only party stemming from grassroots movement

“We are the only party stemming from the grassroots movement,” Green Party’s Tbilisi mayoral candidate Giorgi Gachechiladze said live on GPB First Channel’s program Debates 2021.

“We are one of the oldest parties in Georgia, the founder of the European Green Party, which, on its part, is a member of the Governing Council in the European Parliament. Despite being systematically persecuted and oppressed during each period, it still managed to lay the grounds for environmental policy in Georgia and included a special article in the constitution in order to further develop environmental policy in the country,” Gachechiladze said.
