Will Georgia find way out of political crisis?

Georgia's ruling Georgian Dream party and opposition politicians are holding a second round of negotiations at the United States Ambassador Kelly Degnan’s residence.

The meeting, which started recently, is attended by facilitator ambassadors.

The Georgian Dream party's executive secretary Irakli Kobakhidze is attending the meeting at the ambassador's residence. Kobakhidze noted that he would discuss the details after the meeting.

Leader of the Citizens party Aleko Elisashvili said that the Georgian Dream had to give up important things. Asked if he hopes to hold a plebiscite, Elisashvili said he could not speak in advance.

"They are coming with their proposal, we - with our proposal," Elisashvili said, adding that the opposition had received a written response from the Georgian Dream.

Nine parties have overcome the 1% threshold for the 120 seats in the150-member parliament per the proportional electoral system on October 31, including the Georgian Dream, United National Movement, European Georgia, Strategy Aghmashenebeli, Lelo for Georgia, Alliance of Patriots, Girchi, Citizens and Labour Party.

Claiming that the elections have been rigged, opposition parties demand repeat elections, the dismissal of the CEC head Tamar Zhvania and the recomposition of the election administration.
