Archil Talakvadze and members of the parliamentary majority met with opposition

Speaker of Georgian Parliament Archil Talakvadze and members of the parliamentary majority met with representatives of opposition parties today.

The meeting focused on holding the 2020 parliamentary elections under the proportional system.

As lawmakers said after the meeting, the meeting was mainly of a technical nature and concerned the schedule of public-discussions over the constitutional amendments and staffing the commissions.

The parties agreed that for both initiatives on the proportional electoral system, the Public Commissions would be staffed by the same members.

One initiative, drafted by the parliamentary majority, envisages holding the parliamentary elections under the proportional system with the zero threshold and without election blocs by 2020. The second initiative prepared by opposition proposes a fully proportional election under a three-percent-threshold, allowing the election blocs.
