"We have several very important priorities- ensuring the security of the country and employment of the population, allocation of cheap credits, insurance. Everyone in the authorities are orientated to reach these objectives. The referendum, aimed to hold early elections, will obstacle completion of the set tasks", he said.
At the same time, Minashvili called for the opposition to reach them by joint effort. "We offer the opposition a dialog on issues and priorities, important for the Georgian people, but not for political games and satisfaction of political ambitions. Surely, we do not support holding the referendum," he informed.
