Georgian Prime Minister curses in Parliament
A heated discussion took place in the Georgian parliament during a hearing of the Cabinet of Ministers of Georgia wherein Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili answered questions from parliamentary oppositional factions. During the special session Parliament had to approve the renewed composition of the government.
The meeting with the former ruling party National Movement was interrupted half an hour after it began due to an obscene remark made by Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili. He was set off by a comment made by Niki Melia, the leader of the National Movement when he said that ‘the Prime Minister doesn’t know the real situation in our country’.
Both Kvirikashvili and Melia jumped up from their seats and headed towards each other. Security guards and other ministers quickly pulled the government head out of the hall.
The Prime Minister can clearly be heard cursed the deputy in footage shot by television cameras:
Fifteen minutes later, before beginning a meeting with the Patriots’ Alliance (another opposition faction) the Prime Minister publicly apologized for his emotional outburst.
