Nino Burjanadze: "The government should make a compromise and re-initiate discussions on constitutional changes."
The leader of the democratic movement Nino Burjanadze believes that if the government does not make compromise and refuse to re-initiate discussions on constitutional reform, processes will escalate to 'great confrontation' and 'instability'. As Burjanadze noted, when people are forfeited of their right to change the government, they change the government without the elections.
If the government does not make compromise and refuse to re-initiate discussions on constitutional reform, processes will escalate to great confrontation and instability. When people are forfeited of their right to change the government, they change the government without the elections. Let's avoid this, this is not our choice."
According to her, the government lied to the people and decided to stay in power through adjusting the constitution to their needs.
"Changes with regards to the President and electoral environment are severe. 'Georgian Dream' knows that if majoritarian system is abolished, they will lose all chances of remaining in the government. Therefore, they are doing everything in their powers to remain in the government."
With regards to the lowering of electoral threshold, Burjanadze suggested that this was an attempt to bribe the opposition.

"This constitutes bargaining with opposition which is a shame. Compromising on threshold while they are abolishing electoral bloc is unfair. This was an attempt to bribe the opposition parties. As it seems, Ivanishvili is no more willing to spend his own money on bribing certain political parties as he used to in the past. Therefore, now he has decide to use electoral threshold as leverage. I call on all opposition parties not to surrender their principles for the electoral threshold."
In Radisson Iveria, parliamentary and non-parliamentary opposition parties, diplomats, Ombudsman and special representative of the President - Pikria Chikhradze are participating in a conference on constitutional reform. Opposition and President's administration believe that constitutional discussions in the Parliament must be halted.
