At today's press conference Koba Davitashvili, the People's Party leader, said that primaries initiators make one more step to meet colleagues halfway and agree to select one candidate via sociological survey.
They proposed all the opposition forces to consult and define the rules of the survey. The talks must be finished on March 7th. If one opinion isn't worked out, they propose own rules.
Davitashvili called on all the forces to work in accord and do not confront each other. Primaries initiators promise not to criticize any opposition force up to May 30th.
The decision was announced after the negotiations, attended by Zviad Dzidziguri and Kakha Kukava, the Conservative party leader; Zurab Noghaideli, the Movement for Just Georgia leader; and representatives of other parties, supporting primaries.
He commented the decision of Irakli Alasania on cessation of negotiations with primaries organizers, and called it "one step forward, two steps back".
