MP Shavlokhashvili is a majoritarian MP from Tsalka constituency in Kvemo Kartli region. The new faction is chaired by MP Giga Bukia.

Currently there are four factions within the GD parliamentary majority group with total of 83 lawmakers.

A separate faction has been established by those six MPs who have quit the UNM.
