Tyranny and autocracy were under Mikheil Saakashvili - Talakvadze's answer to Degnan


Deputy Speaker Talakvadze responds to a statement by US Ambassador Kelly Degnan in which the diplomat spoke about the dangers of tyranny. Talakvadze also reminds Degnan the previous government:

"If there was any tyranny and autocratic rule in this country, it was under Mikhail Saakashvili - an example of one-party rule and power in recent history is Mikhail Saakashvili and the National Movement," Talakvadze said.

According to him, the Dream government "carried out fundamental democratic reforms" and today the parliament is multi-party and the new opposition parties have state funding and full access to the media.
