Georgia, Tbilisi, Oct. 2 /Trend N.Kirtshkhalia/
Georgian strategy on European integration and joining NATO will remain unchaged, the leader of Georgian Dream party, which won the parliamentary elections, Bidzina Ivanishvili stated on the press conference in Tbilisi on Tuesday.
n his words, the party has direct positions on retrieval of Georgia's territorial integrity.
Ivanishvili stressed that he will refuse from Mikheil Saakashvili's policy to be the world player.
"This is a mistaken policy, we are going to become a regional player and improve relations with neighbors, including Russia," he noted.
According to Ivanishvili, Georgia will make an attempt to determine the policy in the region to a certain extent.
"We would certainly like to have strategic partner, including USA. But we also want good relations with neighbors, neighborhood policy is our priority, " he stated.
While answering the journalists' questions, Ivanishvili noted that he hasn't received congratulation calls from White House or Kremlin yet.
Parliamentary elections were held in Georgia on a mixed - list, majority system. Around 150 MPs must be elected - 77 on the lists (a passing barrier of five per cent) and 73 - single-seat constituencies.
Parliament will receive more authority in 2013 after amendments to the Constitution take effect resulting in the president's power being reduced.
