"Yesterday there was a meeting of the ruling political party, after which public statements have been made. Different
points of view have been outlined between me and the ruling team, specifically concerning the economic policy pursued by the government under my leadership. I would like to emphasize that in recent months my opinion differed from the party chairman’s opinion on a number of fundamental issues. This is a normal process. I have never escaped debates after 2012, and I think today is the moment when the chairman of the party should be given the opportunity to staff his team on the basis of his views," said Giorgi Kvirikashvili.

"I know very well that people have problems. A lot of families have to live in the most difficult conditions to survive. That is true, but I know absolutely exactly that without our policy, population would still not be able to live a normal life for many more years. I would never allow myself to do. I think my team was very motivated in this direction," Giorgi Kvirikashvili said.

Deutsche Welle, Germany's public international broadcaster devoted an article to Georgian PM's resignation. "Georgia's PM resigns after dispute with billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili," DW has reported.

"Premier Giorgi Kvirikashvili announced his departure in comments carried on television. Citing a dispute with Georgia's richest man and ruling party leader Bidzina Ivanishvili, it also followed a drop in his popularity," reads the article.

According to the article, "Kvirikashvili has been Georgia's prime minister for more than two and a half years but he has come into dispute with former prime minister and head of the ruling Georgian Dream coalition, Bidzina Ivanishvili."
