Georgia's ruling party and opposition may hold talks tomorrow

The diplomatic corps in Georgia has offered to orchestrate a meeting between the ruling party and the opposition which may take place early tomorrow, the ruling Georgian Dream party MP Irakli Kobakhidze stated.

According to him, the meeting, which comes amid protests in Tbilisi sparked by the rejection of the election reform bill on November 14, will discuss the German electoral model for 2020 elections among other issues, which is demanded by the opposition.

Kobakhidze said that foreign diplomats will attend the meeting, Agenda.ge reported.

The EU Ambassador to Georgia Carl Hartzell said that "he is happy' the meeting will take place.  He added that it is time “the parties speak less about one another and speak more with each other.”

Leader of the European Georgia opposition party Giga Bokeria said that if the meeting will concern the transition to a proportional electoral system, "as it was promised by the ruling party, we are, of course, ready to get involved."
