Prime Minister of Georgia
Irakli Gharibashvili
Nika Gvaramia: I think that these elections are of great importance in Georgia, usurpation of the government should not be allowed either by domestic or international actors
Zurab Japaridze: We are talking to both Nika Gvaramia and other political groups, we are in constant communication with Lelo - I, Nika Gvaramia and Elene Khoshtaria believe that consolidation is the solution
Irakli Kobakhidze: IRI and IPM have messed up before and they can easily mess up now too - these organizations don't trust themselves anymore, they've messed up the election results so many times
IRI survey: If parliamentary elections were held this coming Saturday, 25% of respondents would support Georgian Dream and 13% - National Movement
Kakha Kaladze: There are still political groups who want confrontation, who want to overthrow the government - maybe someone from the outside supports this, but we will not allow this
Kakha Kaladze: Elene Khoshtaria is living with roubles, and Zura-Girchi, pardon me, but was running around naked - how can you get bullied by them, we can only joke about such things and have fun
Elene Khoshtaria: The opposition should create an optimal election configuration and continue the fight, Giorgi Vashadze sees himself in the National Movement in this configuration, Droa - doesn't - we will have our election declaration as well
Shalva Papuashvili: Some foreign and Georgian political forces, non-governmental organizations and individuals are trying to present the interests of the government as separate from the interests of the people.
Shalva Papuashvili: The tactic of virtually separating Georgia’s democratic government from Georgian people fits the Russian hybrid playbook
Irakli Kobakhidze: It is fundamentally unacceptable for us when specific diplomats in Georgia incite polarization, they should take care of the polarization that is deepening in their own country
Irakli Kobakhidze: Is it not allowed to work out on May 26?! - invading someone else's private space is the signature of the National Movement, they are Bolsheviks, they are foreign agents
Elene Khoshtaria was released from the temporary detention facility
Elena Khoshtaria: I am not going to go to this slave court, this is not a court - my lawyer and I will not cooperate with the system
Droa party says its leader Elene Khoshtaria was arrested
Elena Khoshtaria: Today our state is on guard of Russia's interests
Elene Khoshtaria: The Russian plane will not be able to land comfortably here - on May 19 we will protest this treacherous decision
6 opposition parties: The “Russian Dream” has started the final stage of the change of the foreign-political course of Georgia and the establishment of Russian authoritarianism
Viola von Cramon: If EU will grant candidate status to Georgia then it’s NOT because the government implemented all the priorities the EU had given to Georgia but because the Georgian people deserve it and the geopolitical logic demands it
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
