After two-day silence Salome Zurabishvili makes the first statement.
The presidential candidate thanks her supporters. According to her, she continues to fight and is not going to withdraw her candidacy .
"Maybe someone thinks that this is not the victory we expected. The first place in the first round is the victory. Despite all the sophistication and methods of the dirty campaign that belong to Russian technology, despite all this, we have the first place in the first round. Rustavi 2 thinks and convinces people that I can withdraw my candidacy and what, should I concede my country to Vashadze and Russia? And should I leave supporters and comrades in the middle of a battle? - no! I think they do not know me! I am Kakhetian and Megrelian too. Stubborn, loyal to my people and country, and I am ready for the second tour! "- said Salome Zurabishvili.
