Prime Minister Kobakhidze Accuses President Zourabichvili of 'Betraying' Country

At the Independence Day commemoration event, Prime Minister Irakli Kobakhidze accused President Salome Zourabichvili of betraying the country and its interests during his speech in front of the National army.

"Georgia and its independence are still facing the most difficult challenges. However, today, Georgian society is much more experienced than it was in the first years of independence restoration, and the country is governed by a government that stands on guard for the sovereignty and independence of Georgia, protecting its national interests.

It is the unity and reasoned steps of the people and their elected government that have given us the opportunity to maintain peace in the country for the past two years despite existential threats and multiple betrayals, including the betrayal of the President of Georgia," said the Prime Minister

Several Opposition Parties Approve Georgian Charter Initiated by President

Opposition party representatives have voiced their approval of President Salome Zourabichvili's Georgian Charter. The idea proposed by Zourabichvili has been accepted by Ahali, Lelo, European Georgia, United National Movement, Republican Party, Girchi - More Freedom, and Droa.

"It is a very important charter; it is necessary for the country, and it represents a significant commitment essential for the country's European future. Therefore, Lelo will certainly join this charter. We believe that its implementation will undoubtedly pave the way for the country to become a member of the European Union," Lelo's Badri Japaridze.

"I appreciate the President's speech, her spirit, and all the messages. This is the message that, in my opinion, our society and political parties need: to demonstrate that different political forces can agree on the steps we need to take to move away from the edge of the abyss that the Ivanishvili regime has led the country to and get back on the right path. My position is that all political parties should join these messages," said the leader of European Georgia, Giga Bokeria.

"Parties Girchi-More Freedom and Droa welcome the initiative of the President of Georgia, Salome Zourabichvili, which calls for parties to agree on a unified vision of the reforms necessary for initiating negotiations with the European Union. We hereby sign the Georgian Charter," as stated by Girchi - More Freedom and Droa.
