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: We will have a list of all the people who are trying to violate the dignity of Grigoriadis today - I promise, everyone will be held accountable
Giorgi Vashadze: This rally is fake like members of Georgian Dream, I recognized three people behind the masks - Bidzina Ivanishvili, Irakli Kobakhidze and Irakli Gharibashvili
Elene Khoshtaria: Irakli Gharibashvili received the harshest letter from the European Parliament, which contains a warning that the rights of peaceful protestants should be protected
Elene Khoshtaria: There are reports that the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Security Service have started summoning peaceful demonstrators for questioning - don't even dare to think about persecution
