Congressman Adam Kinzinger has congratulated the participants of the political dialogue on today’s agreement and said: “democracy is hard work, but worth it.”
“My heartfelt “congrats” to the people of Georgia for reaching an agreement on the 2020 parliamentary elections. Democracy is hard work, but worth it. Speaker Talakvadze and many others deserve appreciation for their work. Larger statement to follow later,” Adam Kinzinger tweeted.
The agreement on the electoral model between the government and the opposition has been reached earlier today.
As the dialogue facilitators, said in their statement, the agreement foresees an election system for 2020 based on 120 proportional mandates and 30 majoritarian mandates, a fair composition of election districts, a 1% threshold, and a cap recognizing that no single party that wins less than 40% of the votes should be able to get its own majority in the next parliament.
