The National Movement Party offered a sheer lie on May 17 by providing the results of a public poll allegedly conducted by Ipsos Group S.A., a global market research and a consulting firm with worldwide headquarters in Paris, France. Ipsos has never carried out such a poll – Mamuka Mdinaradze, Leader of Georgian Dream parliamentary faction told journalists.
“We were not astonished at hearing the lie because it is their usual style. . . . It is highly possible that a satellite organization of the National Movement carried out the poll. We will see how trustworthy the poll is tomorrow,” Mdinaradze said and described the fact as being ‘fake news.’
