Talks come few hours after the Christian-Democratic Party presented its set of conditions, the party said, if accepted would help create better conditions for the opposition lawmakers’ work in the parliament. Only MP Paata Davitaia, leader of On Our Own Party elected in the parliament on the opposition coalition’s joint ticket, agreed to engage in talks with ruling party based on the Christian-Democratic Party’s memorandum. Davitaia quitted the coalition shortly after the elections.
The main opposition group – coalition of eight parties - as well as the Labor Party has snubbed the proposal.
Davit Bakradze said on June 11 that the ruling party was ready to launch talks with the opposition to discuss the memorandum provisions, although also added not all of the demands were acceptable.
“The negotiations mean making a compromise. We do not raise any ultimatums,” Giorgi Targamadze, the Christian Democratic Party leader told journalists before the meeting with ruling party leaders.
He also said that there was one part of the opposition, which had chosen “road of radical confrontation.”
“I respect their choice,” Targamadze continued, “but there is also another part of opposition, which thinks that as a result of joint coordination it will be possible to gain much serious results through using all the available lavers and resources. I belong to this part [of political groups].”
