As a representative of the legislative body, I was limited in playing a positive role - the law, which everyone agreed would be a step forward, did not have support just because I was an oppositionist, Giorgi Khojevanishvili, who is quitting the parliamentary mandate and the party For Georgia, told reporters.
As Khojevanishvili noted, he is leaving politics and returning to the private sector.
According to him, the chairman of the party was informed about the decision and he talked about this issue with him.
"The main thing for me is that I could serve the voters who supported me. At the stage, we are at, and I am personally, when I am not given the opportunity to be an effective majoritarian and considering that political office has never been important to me, I have made the relevant decision. I was the author of one of the good legislative initiatives, everyone agreed that it would be a step forward, but only because I was an oppositionist, this law, which was supposed to serve the interests of society, did not have support, there were other such cases. Consequently, I, as a representative of the legislative body, was limited in playing a positive role. This concerns me and I cannot speak for someone else, as a majoritarian MP, I considered that I could not justify the entrusted mandate," said Khojevanishvili.
For information, Giorgi Khojevanishvili announced that he was quitting the party and parliamentary mandate yesterday.
