Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili answered questions related to the deputies who left the Georgian Dream by founding the People's Power movement. PM explained that the position of the ruling party differs from that voiced by ex-colleagues, and Georgia needs stronger partners and allies.

"Of course, every person has every right to make any decision that he considers [right], that's how we understand democracy. We are a democratic society, we must maximally promote pluralism, the development of various ideas, ideologies, and ultimately people must decide which ideology is more acceptable to them.

For me personally — I have already said and I will repeat — we had a conversation within the team on these issues, we told them that we did not agree with their position, we made it clear. We told them that it was unacceptable to express their positions in such a way, and I indicated that < > we are a small country, we have many challenges, some territories are occupied, we need strong partners and allies. We need very good, strong relations with everyone, especially with our main partners — the United States, representatives of the European Union," Garibashvili said.

At the same time, he added that the members of the new movement left the ruling party, which in itself indicates a difference of views.

Recall that today it became known that five more Georgian Dream deputies are leaving the party to join Sozar Subari, Dimitri Khundadze, Mikheil Kavelashvili and Guram Macharashvili in the framework of the Power of the People movement.

On June 28, Khundadze, Subari and Kavelashvili announced their decision to leave the party in order to "talk more". According to them, the public has accumulated questions to which the ruling party, for obvious reasons, cannot give an answer.

In fact, the former members of the "Dream" completely repeat the narrative of the ruling party and conduct an anti-Western campaign in Georgia. The US Ambassador to Georgia, Kelly Dagnan, has repeatedly been the target of their attacks. Formally, former members of the "Dream" claim that the United States funds campaigns against the state and the Church.
