The main purpose of the negotiations is the creation of a coalition to the presidential elections - Novy Region.

"After the expiration of presidential term of Mikheil Saakashvili in 2013, Gigi Ugulava can become the new head of state. Personally I won't be against," he said to Kviris Palitra [Georgian weekly].
