“Several opposition parties made ultimatums regarding Giorgi Rurua and the issue of early elections. These two demands made reaching an agreement impossible,” Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Education and Science, Shalva Papuashvili, said on Monday.
“We have seen several statements from opponents recently calling this document the sheer faulty paper. They claimed that they would not sign the EU-mediated solution. I think now we have answers to all questions. Several opposition parties demanded reflection of the Giorgi Rurua case and the early elections in the document. These two demands made reaching an agreement impossible,” the majority MP said.
He denied any political crisis in the country. “Talking about the so-called political crisis is improper. I think our opponents are in a deep crisis, and they require a restart,” Papuashvili added.
The second EU-mediated attempt to solve political crises in Georgia failed earlier this week. EU mediator Christian Danielsson said he proposed a solution that puts the country’s interest first to the parties, but none of the political actors agreed on the solution.
