Representatives of the ruling Georgian Dream party and opposition will hold a meeting on November 30 – Irakli Kobakhidze, a member of the parliamentary majority said. The so-called German Model of elections will be the main topic for discussions and representatives of the Diplomatic Corps will attend the meeting.

The Georgian opposition sees the adoption of the German Model of election system as the way out of the current political crisis in the country.
The German Model requires making changes in the Election Code by 76 votes to be approved. The model was first initiated in the Georgian parliament in 2016.
According to Davit Usupashvili, former speaker of the parliament, the German Model will satisfy the demand of the proportional rule of elections and retention of Majoritarian constituencies at the same time.
The European Parliament held a discussion about the ongoing developments of Georgia in the format of the plenary session on November 27. Andrius Kubilius, a Lithuanian politician and a Member of the European Parliament called on the Georgian ruling party and opposition to agree on election system reform.
