Khatuna Lagazidze: Authorities play scenes from the theater of three actors
There is nothing surprising in the consent of the authorities to negotiations, this is a natural process. And what can they say, say – do not talk to us and do not enter parliament? Roles in the ruling party are distributed, and in this case Kaladze acts as a rational politician ready for negotiations. There are other subjects in the government who declare that new elections cannot be the subject of negotiations. This is the classic carrot and stick policy. They act out scenes from the performance of three actors: one is busy with attacks on the opposition, another conciliatory promises a compromise, and the third talks about negotiations, but without compromises.
Of course, there is no other way but negotiations, but if we want these negotiations to lead to any results, the opposition must very clearly state its conditions and explain to people that in the eyes of the West it is very important that these negotiations take place and be successful. Under the terms, this is undoubtedly the dismissal of the chairman of the Central Election Commission, the approval of a new rule for the composition of election commissions and repeated or early elections. The difference between them is significant, since re-elections are called when the results of the existing elections are declared invalid and it turns out that the authorities have falsified the results. Early elections are called by the president, for example, if parliament cannot form a government. thus, early elections will be silent on the face of the authorities.
