President Saakashvili said he was unhappy looking at “large part” of the opposition “regressing” and getting “deeper into the swamp”.

“Frankly speaking I am not really happy looking at one part of our political class and seeing that the opposition is in such a situation.

“Not only they failed to progress, but they regressed and got deeper into the swamp,” Saakashvili added.
