National Corps party said they supported political demands of the October 17 rally, but do not share the rhetoric of former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili. This was stated on the party's website page.  

"We declare that the proposed requirements set by the rally on October 17 correspond to our program and previous actions. A number of public organizations and parties join in to the rally of October 17. We admit the possibility of joint actions for the sake of achieving the goal. We also want to emphasize that we do not have special respect for odious persons. We do not share the rhetoric of the former president of Georgia and do not believe in the special success of liberal movements during the war, "the party said in a statement.

National Corps notes that according to program principles, the party stands for reforming the electoral system and revoking deputies’ immunity.

"We have repeatedly criticized the system of majority districts, which today have become centers of bribery of voters and administrative pressure," the statement said.

"At the same time, we note that the National Corps is against Poroshenko's current actions and the system he created, and we recognize that any actions of the current leaders of Ukraine are of an anti-state nature and should be controlled by the public," the National corps said.

As it was reported earlier allies of Mikheil Saakashvili, former Odesa region governor and the leader of the Movement of New Forces political party, are rallying near Ukrainian parliament. A number of other political parties are rallying too.

The organizers demand to deprive Ukrainian lawmakers of parliamentary immunity, to change election law creating open party lists, and to create anti-corruption court.
