Khatuna Samnidze: Georgian Dream breaks its promise when it declares that it is not going to change the 5% threshold - the creation of unions will be vital if we want to change the government

Georgian Dream breaks its promise when it declares that it is not going to change the 5% threshold - the creation of unions will be vital if we want to change the government, - Chairwoman of the Republican Party Khatuna Samnidze said.

According to him, Irakli Kobakhidze's statements regarding the elections and the threshold show fear.

"Georgian Dre­am made a clear promise, and in addition, we passed constitutional amendments in the parliament in one reading, which provides for the reduction of the threshold to 2 percent. This is the issue on which the opposition and Georgian Dre­am agreed, but unfortunately, this is not the first time when they are breaking a promise by saying that they are not going to change the 5 percent threshold, which means that the opposition spectrum will have to rethink its strategy. Building unions will be vital if we want to change the government.

Kobakhidze makes his fears public, it seems that they are afraid of the National Movement and because of this, they are creating a problem for the country, this is going against the interests of the country, because the citizens' order is a multi-party parliament, that there should be European governance in this country, and they are going against it”, said Samnidze.

She also responded to the statement of Beka Liluashvili, deputy of the For Georgia party, who called on the government to increase the threshold to the historical maximum.

"The electorate is diverse, as well as the opposition spectrum, and all polls show that no party has enough support to change the government, it is necessary to have a multi-party parliament," said Samnidze.

In addition, according to Samnidze, the return of old identity cards is a dangerous initiative. The deputy plans to participate in the meetings announced by the ruling team on this issue and says that she hopes the government will change its position.
