Christian Democrats met with supporters in Kakheti
Leaders of the Christian Democratic Movement of Georgia met with the voters within the pre-election campaign in the Kakheti Region. Giorgi Targamadze, the leader of the CDM, was the first to address the supporters and introduce the 10-point program of the party to the voters. `The disaster is not the only threat for Kakheti, the main threat for Kakheti is the negligence of Saakashvili`s National Movement and absolute irresponsibility, which destructed all sectors of Georgia`s agriculture. The best example of this is Kakheti today, which is on one hand afraid of disaster, hail and bad weather, but on the other hand, it is afraid to have good harvest as they will have to throw it away. Today, every person is harvesting the result of the politics of Saakashvili and the National Movement, which was against the development of Georgian agriculture,` Giorgi Targamadze said. Other leaders of the movement also addressed the crowd in Gurjaani. Inga Grigolia called on Saakashvili to resign from the post of the chairman of the ruling party and let the National Movement participate in the parliamentary elections independently.
