Oppositional Group of Eight arranged a tour of Georgia2011-04-14 14:14
Representatives of the oppositional Group of Eight conducting a dialogue with the country's authorities on reforming the electoral environment started to hold meetings with the residents of the Georgian regions.
As was reported by PirWeli, the first meeting took place in Kutaisi in Bagrat Hotel, where representatives of various international organizations were invited.
It is reported that after the meeting in Kutaisi, the oppositionists will go to East Georgia.
Let us remind you that eight oppositional parties' representatives are currently conducting negotiations with the authorities on improving the electoral environment. Recently, a spokesman of the Group of Eight Mamuka Katsitadze declared that the country's authorities should not treat the dialogue with the opposition depreciatingly.
"If the authorities continue mocking the process and voice contrary proposals and positions in response to ours, negotiations will not go on. We have no intention to conduct negotiations "for no particular reason", thus creating an additional basis for the authorities so that they could assert they're talking to the opposition", - Katsitadze said.
According to him, amendments to the Georgian electoral legislation should be made before autumn.
Not so long ago, representatives of the Group of Eight took a decision to yield to the official Georgian authorities in the issue of the step-by-step improvement of the electoral environment in the country. "We provide for the opinions expressed by the negotiation parties and suggest that the authorities should divide the issues in two groups and consider two of them at the first stage: making up the lists of electors and electoral system", - goes the statement of the Group of Eight representatives adopted at a meeting in the Free Democrats' office.
It should be noted that earlier, political secretary of the Georgian Labour Party Giorgy Gugava hailed criticism on representatives of the oppositional Group of Eight - those parties that are carrying out consultations with the authorities on electoral environment improvement.
According to Gugava, such activity will not bring any result. "While the so-called oppositional Group of Eight is preoccupied with electoral masturbation, Saakashvili's falsification machine has started working", - believes the political secretary of the Georgian Labour Party.
