“We are closely watching and analyzing this,” he added. “Analyzing daily news coming from Tbilisi, drawing conclusions,” Karasin said.The dismissal of Georgia’s Defense Minister Irakly Alasania on Tuesday triggered a split in the ruling party coalition and the government of Georgia. On Wednesday, Our Georgia-Free Democrats, the party he founded, announced its withdrawal from the ruling Georgian Dream coalition.
Following Alasania’s sacking, State Minister for Euro-Atlantic Integration Alexi Petriashvili and Foreign Minister Maia Panjikidze, also members of Alasania’s party, announced their resignation on Wednesday.
The defense minister’s dismissal came after he had stated that law enforcement agencies were persecuting some officers of his agency for political reasons.
