"The United National Movement is trying to artificially cause destrabilisation. However, they will not achieve the goal," Agenda cited Kobakhidze as saying.
"Their election campaign is based on cheap, black PR campaign, spreading disinformation, and offending of the presidential candidate who is supported by us," he added.

Kobakhidze stated that this year fake list of supporters were presented at the Georgian Central Election Commission, which is the "handwriting" of the United National Movement.
