Former non-judge member of High Council of Justice (HCoJ) Anna Dolidze has established a political party For People.
Dolidze said earlier today that her team aims to be the alternative force between the ruling Georgian Dream and opposition United National Movement (UNM) parties.
Anna Dolidze tweeted yesterday:

She also stated that next week her party will decide whether to have its mayoral candidate for the upcoming municipal elections or not.
However, she considers that introduction of UNM chair Nika Melia as a joint opposition candidate might be a losing choice.

What we have seen in previous elections is that the representatives of UNM [usually] lose against the Georgian Dream”, Dolidze said.
Therefore, she believes that the opposition should choose the tactics that would lead to their eventual victory.
By uniting only around the UNM candidate might again end up with the Georgian Dream’s victory”, she added.
She was also the independent majoritarian candidate for Didube-Chugureti district in Tbilisi in last year’s parliamentary elections.
