Georgian opposition parties are protesting the placement of a section on the founder of the Georgian Dream ruling (GD) ruling party Bidzina Ivanishvili in a textbook of history for ninth graders. 

Several opposition party leaders have stated that the section is ‘propagandist,’ ‘praising Ivanishvili and the current government, while diminishing the role and achievements of the United National Movement (UNM) while in office.’ 

Droa opposition party leader Elene Khoshtaria has called on the public to join her protest starting today to remove ‘communist leader Ivanishvili from the textbook.’
