Either the 2020 elections will be conducted under the proportional system, or we will take to streets, – said Grigol Vashadze, Chairman of the United National Movement Party.
Vashadze evaluated the behaviour of the parliamentary majority members and described it as being a ‘poor performance.’
“I do not know what the purpose of yesterday’s poor performance was – to show our allies how difficult it is to keep a promise in a democratic Georgia or to show Georgian citizens how much internal democracy they have in the so-called Georgian Dream. But the outcome will be simple – either the 2020 elections will be held under the proportional system, or we will take to streets. You can be sure that everybody who votes for the bill today will do the same in spring too,” Vashadze said.
Based on the initiative of the parliamentary majority, the 2020 parliamentary elections will be held with the proportional (party) system under the conditions of 0%, the so-called ‘natural’ election barrier. Discussions over the constitutional changes continue in the parliament.
