Public Defender of Georgia
Nino Lomjaria
Former PM of Georgia; For Georgia chairman
Giorgi Gakharia
Prime Minister of Georgia
Irakli Gharibashvili
Bokeria on the UN resolution: China has not supported us for years, and this disgraceful government thanks for its restraint
"Georgian Charter" is signed by 17 parties and 5 independent deputies
Giga Bokeria: It is important to unite different political forces regarding the necessary steps to be taken after the defeat of Ivanishvili's regime
Giga Bokeria: all those who talk in advance about electoral grouping between parties are acting irresponsibly and endangering coordination against Ivanishvili's regime
Giga Bokeria: public protest should shake this regime so that they have to accept giving up power
Giga Bokeria: Our prediction came true and after receiving the status, the Ivanishvili regime deepened its anti-Western policy - the answer to this should be a peaceful protest
Giga Bokeria on Gharibashvili's statement: To say that Russian aggression is the fault of any Georgian government is a betrayal of national interests
Giga Bokeria: Glorification of Stalin and his empire, not unequivocally evil, is an integral part of the propaganda of our enemy, Putin's Russia
Giga Bokeria on Bidzina Ivanishvili's return to politics: I think it does not change anything for society - I object to the term return because he has never gone anywhere
Giga Bokeria: It's a big mistake to focus on who will be grouped with whom, the main thing is to increase the support necessary for change - shifting the groups does not change the total
Giga Bokeria: Political prisoner Saakashvili said another nonsense and should we take it seriously? It's complete nonsense, starting with the term 'Super PAC' and ending with the definitions that are being made
Giga Bokeria: The parties of Geneva negotiations are only Russia and Georgia - this was a principled position for us and it should be a principled position for the current government
Giga Bokeria: Ivanishvili's regime will be defeated by focusing on the content, and not by repeating Ivanishvili's phrases or constantly speculating on unification
Giga Bokeria: Without changing this government with a pro-Western, i.e. pro-Georgian government, "nothing can save us, not even the candidate status”
Giga Bokeria: When declaring Russia as a malicious dictatorship, we do not have a government that would promote our national interests
Opposition: The government's attempt to intimidate and arrest political opponents will not bring the desired result - we demand the release of Nika Melia, Bacho Dolidze and Zviad Kuprava
Giga Bokeria: Getting involved in the theater of the absurd together with the Ivanishvili regime, in violation of the law, is another harm from Salome Zurabishvili
Giga Bokeria: Our problem is that, parallel to the isolation of Russia, we do not have a government that will properly take advantage of the situation in line with our national interests
Robin Wagener - With the law on "transparency of foreign influence", there will be no EU membership - No chance for that
Estonian Ambassador to Georgia - If we want EU membership, we should all play by the rules - The Georgian Government on the one hand says that they are moving closer to the EU, but their actions do not prove that
