Leader of Georgian Opposition Party States that Discussions with Government Have Broken
Georgia, Tbilisi, 12 March /corr. Trend N.Kirskhalia / The leader of the Georgian opposition party 'New Rights', David Gamkrelidze, considers that the dialogue with Government has 'finally collapsed'. The MP who went on a hunger strike reported to Trend that the members of the party and parliamentary party do not intend to compromise, because the talks process was initiated by the Head of the Parliament.
"Nino Burjanadze broke all the agreements and speculates that there is real concession in settling the issue regarding the composition of the Trustee Council of Georgia Public Broadcasting, but this is deceptive," Gamkrelidze said.
According to him, in reality the opposition speaks only about the agreements which were reached with regards to the election system and have fully ignored the past. "All these agreements are ignored and we are prepared to fight to the end. We need a fair and free election," Gamkrelidze said.
The leader of the party and five other members of the party went on hunger strike on 10 March and will continue until the Parliament of Georgia cancels the adopted quota for majoritarians - 75 seats out of 150 seats in the Parliament.
