Irakli Kobakhidze, head of the Georgian Dream ruling party said Monday that a rally organized by the Home to Europe movement in central Tbilisi on July 3, had “demonstrated once again that the radical opposition has no resources to spark unrest in the country.”
He suggested that the “opposition's plans to overthrow the government” had failed due to “the lack of public support.”
Kobakhidze suggested that electoral constitutional changes were possible in the country if the opposition took steps for depolarization.
"Constitutional changes are a purely political issue. This is a topic that requires a political solution, and we will make this political decision if the opposition takes steps in the direction of depolarization, for one simple reason - where there is a high degree of polarization, it is better to have a high [election] threshold, where there is a low degree of polarization, there it is possible low threshold. There are no other conditions,” Kobakhidze said.
The Home to Europe movement, which is demanding the resignation of the PM and a new Cabinet, has held several rallies in the Georgian capital and regions, accusing the authorities of taking “anti-Western” steps.
