The situation we are facing in the country is potentially a real threat of destabilization, - Salome Samadashvili, one of the leaders of the United National Movement, stated in her interview with Palitranews' TV program Newsroom.
Salome Samadashvili believes that reaching an agreement in the situation is important.
"The situation we are facing in the country is potentially a real threat of destabilization. What I mean by this is that political stability is maintained in the country when the political sentiments and political choices of the people are more or less adequately reflected in the legislature body. In this situation, when we get a one-party parliament, we will create a deeper and deeper crisis. It will become increasingly distant from each other what people want and who governs these people. So no matter what the assessments of this election are, and I think the final assessments will be tougher, I do not know when this will bring the results. There should be pressure from the West and inside the country as well. Eventually, this will result in early elections", - Samadashvili said.
As Salome Samadashvili noted in her assessment of the statement of the EU Delegation, the position of international partners regarding entering the parliament is not new and their position has always been that a boycott is not the solution.
"This position is not new, it was repeated once again and very clearly, but no other position has ever been taken by either the EU ambassador or the US representatives. Their position has always been that boycott is not the solution. In fact, there are three positions today: one is that the opposition should enter the parliament, the other is our position and we also have the position of the government, which says that the elections have taken place and they are not going to talk about any re-elections. Some of them call on us to enter the parliament, some say that it's up to us, some say you should enter anyway - they have different positions and they are divided. From these positions, I think it seems very difficult to find an agreement, and it seems that we are really moving towards having a one-party parliament for the first time in the history of modern Georgia. In this regard, I can say that this is a failure for all of us, and first of all for the country, but the responsibility for this will fall primarily on the Georgian Dream", - said Samadashvili.
