Gia Volski: With a few exceptions, there is no opposition in Georgia, they are united in the revolutionary committee - it is welcome if Samnidze has distanced herself from this committee

Khatuna Samnidze's position is welcome - it's a pity, but the fact is that today that with a few exceptions, there is no opposition in Georgia; in fact, they are united in the revolutionary committee - it is welcome if Samnidze has distanced herself from this committee, - one of the leaders of Georgian Dream, Gia Volski told, journalists.

As Volski said in this context, there is a march against Georgia, which they call a march against Georgian Dre­am.

"There is no big difference in the position. Both Khatuna Samnidze and Khatia Dekanoidze themselves say that the EU candidate status belongs to people and not to the government, which is the same as to call on people to throw out the government, elect us and we will do what Paata Manjgaladze promises, that is to get not only the candidate, but the EU membership in two-three days.

Khatuna Samnidze and everyone had the same position, although I don't know what has caused now her honesty. Maybe she sees where the process is going to and if a bad decision is made, she will justify herself... Then they will come up with some new fairy tales", said Gia Volski.

For information, the Chairwoman of the Republican Party, Khatuna Samnidze, said on PalitraNews TV yesterday that there are people in the ranks of the opposition who talk behind closed doors with European partners about the fact that Georgia's EU membership candidate status should be postponed and it should be granted to the country after the 2024 elections. As Samnidze noted, she called on her opposition colleagues to stop spreading damaging messages about Georgia's candidate status.
