Salome Samadashvili: A reliable source gave me information about how it was planned to use Partskhaladze in the upcoming elections
The President met with the representatives of the opposition
Salome Samadashvili: It is easy to make a corrupt deal with the Chinese and you are preparing for corruption - I don't know if Anaklia port will be built or not, even Lenin and Stalin would have built communism throughout this time
Irakli Kobakhidze: We made a decision to elect the candidates nominated by the President, because Salome Zurabishvili and the opposition wanted to sabotage the National Bank - the work of the Board will no longer be in danger

Salome Samadashvili: President Zurabishvili is doing everything to ensure that Georgia does not lose a historic chance to receive candidate status and the government is impeaching her because of this
Salome Samadashvili: The decision to start the impeachment procedure against the President is a Russian task and another obstacle to obtaining candidate status
Salome Samadashvili: Any attempt to prevent the President from paying visits is an anti-constitutional action - Georgian Dream has an order from Moscow that our country should not get the candidate status
Salome Samadashvili: Belgium made a decision to remove Georgia from the list of countries that are considered safe countries in the European Union
Salome Samadashvili: The sanctioning of Georgian Airways by Ukraine is a "just and politically correct step"
Salome Samadashvili: If Georgian Dream tries to pass the deoligarchization law, it will be sabotage against the candidate status
Opposition MPs to Shalva Papuashvili: We call on you to return the EU flag to the facade of the Parliament building, together with the Georgian flag, as it was last year
Salome Samadashvili: Moldova has much bigger challenges than we do, but this state manages to have a coordinated policy with the EU, so it got the status and will start accession negotiations quickly
George Katcharava - Armenia Azerbaijan Confrontation: War or Peace?
Shalva Papuashvili: Georgia’s NATO membership should be above partisan politics
