‘We are not going to discuss any new initiatives related to the electoral system’, – Kakha Kaladze, the Secretary General of ‘Georgian Dream’ party, said at a briefing today.
‘Elections are won by the society’s trust, not the electoral system. We would like to remind you that in 2012, we changed the regime of violence and cruelty through the current electoral system.
The main motto of the United National Movement – Power at any cost – remains unchanged. Since they have no chance of winning under any electoral system, they are trying to bring power back by bringing destruction to the process. Needless to say, this attempt is doomed to failure.
Amid the lack of resources to mobilize people – as it was clear yesterday – they are now trying to bring disorder into the political process with cheap, destructive performances.
We will be as patient as possible. However, we clearly want to say that if the destruction continues, the authorities will have an appropriate response.
Less than one year left before the election. Consequently, We are not going to discuss any new initiatives related to the electoral system.’
Kakha Kaladze added that the elections will be held under the current constitution.
‘The elections will be held under the current constitution, within the set deadlines, with the highest democratic standards and with the very high involvement of the international community.
Therefore, we urge our opponents to prepare for the elections and not blame the electoral systems for the lack of support of the people’.
