Two members of the parliamentary minority Gia Tsagareishvili and Karlo Kopaliani boycotted the Georgian parliament. The parliamentarians have attended the radical opposition demonstrations. They said they leave a minority and will no longer work in the parliament.

At the same time, they do not give up their mandates and status of parliamentarians, as well as salaries worth $1,700 per month.

Tsagareishvili said he also leaves the crisis council.

Kopaliani said he had no moral right to be in the parliament. "Besides, we have been makeshift cells in front of the parliament for a month, but none of my counterparts on the minority had come and wanted to know how I feel," he said.
