The Georgian Troupe (Georgian: ქართული დასი, K’art’uli dasi) is a left-wing Georgian opposition political party with a strong nationalist component set up in January 2007 and chaired by Jondi Bagaturia, formerly a leading activist of the Georgian Labour Party. Bagaturia left the Labour Party following his disagreement with the party leader Shalva Natelashvili in December 2006.[1] The party has promised to nationalize companies and property bought by foreigners. It has been part of the United Opposition alliance since November 2007.[2]
