Upon the collapse of the opposition's "magnificent eight" Georgia's political life switched over to a new figure - six. At first six opposition parties united into Free Choice movement aimed at terminating the "post-Soviet neo-Bolshvist epoch" in Georgia with the help of peaceful change of power and creation of a coalition government. Then six deputies of parliament formed Unity for Justice faction that as its members claim will be in radical opposition to the party of dominant majority. The first thing on the coalition's to-do list is investigation into May 26 events.

The bloody dispersion of National Assembly's meeting on May 26 turned a new leaf in the life of the country. Some political opponents of the regime intimidated by a punitive operation of the ruling top against the opposition decided to make concessions to the government and the fabulous "eight" became history with Christian Democrats and the New Rights unsubscribed. In conditions of the terror launched by the authorities Irakli Alasania, leader of Our Georgia - Free Democrats party decided to stake on legal methods of change of power.
"Our task is to change the electoral environment with the help of active citizenship of a million Georgians... We will take million of Georgian citizens willing to fight for freedom, dignity and well-being, to their feet. Elections are won by a million votes, not million lari, - the statement of the new opposition bloc goes.
"I will declare once again that we see elections as the only form for the change of power. That means we will always reiterate our readiness to run in elections, even totalitarian elections. On the day when our coalition was established we said we needed support of one million Georgian citizens to change the situation and make the leadership, i.e. Saakashvili - hear us", - the leader of Free Democrats commented this address in an interview with Ogonek magazine.
The new association comprises six opposition movements - National Forum, Way of Georgia, Free Democrats, Conservative Party, Republican Party and People's Party. By all appearances, this is a new political trend: now opponents of Mikheil Saakashvili and United National movement prefer gathering in groups of six.
