Ruling party confident in majority, rejects President's coalition proposal  

19.02.24 16:40

Archil Talakvadze, the Georgian Parliament Vice Speaker, on Monday responded to President Salome Zourabichvili's call for a coalition Government in the country, claiming that the ruling Georgian Dream party was enjoying sufficient public support - 60 percent - to form a government independently after the next elections.


Talakvadze criticised the President's suggestion, calling it an attempt to distort reality and mislead the public, particularly since the President holds a non-partisan position.


"We will not form any coalition with the United National Movement [party] - with the force that ran a racketeering in the country, grossly violated human rights, organised raids on the media, undermined the European future of Georgia, and was engaged in torturing people”, Talakvadze said.

The Parliament official concluded by asking Zourabichvili to publicly clarify “who she envisions as coalition partners”, reiterating the Georgian Dream's confidence in forming the Government without needing a coalition.
