"This is his wish and it is very good. Everyone has right to this and I see this only as a good idea,” she said.

According to Charkviani, she did not want to speak about this before the runoff of the October 28 presidential elections but added that the whole opposition is supporting the United Opposition candidate Grigol Vashadze.

Now we are all voting for the united opposition, and after the elections, a new party, which has already been founded, will emerge and it will be called Law and Justice", she said.

Aleko Elisashvili, the former independent candidate for Tbilisi mayor, says political expert Gia Khukhashvli has offered him to get involved in the launch of the third political center in the country.

“I and Khukhashvili have some kind of communication. His opinions and advice, including the creation of a new political force, are very interesting to me,” Aleko Elisashvili said.

According to him, during the consultations with Khukhashvili, they discussed two ideas: the first one envisages turning the civil organization into a political one by 2020 and the second one – to set up a new, joint political organization.

“Everybody feels that the bipolar Georgian policy must end. Everybody feels that there is a need for setting up a powerful political organization…I do not exclude to launch a political organization with a strong team and to start political activities, but at this stage, I am staying in the civil sector," Elisashvili said.
