Irakli Kobakhidze: we constantly strived to achieve consensus and the decision was made under hereof conditions on maintenance of the blocs
According to the Speaker, the decision to in single manner maintain the blocs for the forthcoming Parliamentary elections was made as a result of the compromise, as he stated at the briefing.
According to him, the ruling party does not consider maintenance of blocs as expedient, though the decision was made on the basis of the compromise.
“We constantly strived to achieve consensus. I can reiterate that in my personal opinion and in opinion of the majority in the ruling party – maintenance of the blocs is not expedient. We also can review the current practice. Today, we have registered sundry blocs all of which are fictitious. One bloc is established by one of the opposition parties unifying two one-member parties and another bloc, which unifies another party established two months ago the name of which is unknown to the society and three parties gain state financing the amount of which exceeds million GEL. It means that the tax-payers will pay million GEL excessive annually in favor of the fictitious parties. It is vicious. In our opinion, it was expedient to annul the blocs for the forthcoming elections, though we constantly strived to achieve consensus and the decision was made under hereof conditions on maintenance of the blocs”.
