At the same time, a number of opposition leaders claimed that this proposal is the "attempt to shift of the community attention to the secondary issues". Levan Gachechildze, the ex-presidential candidate stated: "It is another attempt of the authorities to save the presidential position for Mikheil Saakashvili".
However, another ex-presidential candidate, the leader of the Party of the Future, Giya Maisashvili, has a milder position. In his view, "opposition may start a dialog with the authorities, but only in case Ilia II, the Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia will participate in this dialog, since the opposition doesn't trust the authorities". The majority of the opposition parties state that "the dialog with the authorities can be held only on one issue: the peaceful resignation of Saakashvili".
