“We categorically reject all talks related to the early elections,” Garibashvili said.
“This issue is closed and is not being considered. They do not want early elections or fair and democratic elections. They want to change the government by violent means, and they are operating outside the constitutional framework. I would like to reiterate that in the shortest possible time one of my first tasks and priorities will be to restore the constitutional order in the country, ”the Prime Minister emphasized.
The new cabinet was also supported in parliament by the ruling Georgian Dream Party, but the opposition, including the United National Movement, did not take part in the vote.
Opponents of the government believe that there were serious irregularities in the October parliamentary elections and boycott the work of the legislature.
The previous prime minister even resigned last week as the government escalated controversy over the arrest of opposition leader Nick Melia. Hundreds of people took to the streets of the capital, Tbilisi, but at least 25 activists were detained. Police also beat several demonstrators.
Meanwhile, the United States and the European Union have expressed concern about the events in Georgia and call for the escalation of the conflict.
