Georgian government, and opposition fail to come to terms

The ruling Georgian party and the opposition have once again failed to agree on ways to overcome the current political crisis in the country, the European Council's envoy told reporters after the talks.

In early March, President of the European Council Charles Michel appointed Christian Danielsson as his personal envoy to Georgia, who will mediate the dialogue between Georgia’s government and the opposition.

Speaking to reporters after the second round of mediation in Georgia, Danielsson said neither the ruling party nor the opposition were ready to embrace the proposed solutions, that envisage reforms to the country’s electoral sphere and the sphere of justice.

The envoy added that he would inform Michel about the outcome and will wait for further instructions from him, TASS reported.

Danielsson arrived to Tbilisi on March 28. On Monday he met with Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili, President Salome Zourabichvili and held separate talks with representatives of political parties. This is his second visit to the Georgian capital, after the March 12-19 trip.
