CDA Elizabeth Rood’s media comment before the start of the meeting between the ruling party and the opposition (December 8)

CDA Rood: Last week, the ruling party and opposition met to begin a dialogue aimed at restoring trust and identifying the best way forward to make Georgia 2020 Parliamentary elections a real step forward in Georgia’s democratic path. This evening, as they enter the session now, I expect they will continue the discussion aimed at areas that will most likely reach an agreement with respect to the electoral system. And the United States again is pleased to play a supportive role, and I hope that this meeting will produce some progress.
