Demand of those opposition parties, which are behind the ongoing protest rallies, to hold talks on terms of President Saakashvili’s resignation is “an ultimatum” and can not serve as a basis for a dialogue, Davit Bakradze, the parliamentary chairman, said on April 21.
“The radical part of the opposition has once again rejected dialogue and reaffirmed once again its position that they are ready to speak only about an ultimatum,” he said while speaking at a session of parliamentary bureau.
“I think that this is a very bad development, because this is not the way that will lead them to any concrete and positive result,” Bakradze continued. “Anyway, this is their choice. I hope that at a certain point they will revise this position and I reaffirm that we are ready for a dialogue with this part of the opposition as well as with separate parties and political leaders in this group.”
