“The proportional electoral system is better for Georgia’s stable, democratic development,” Irakli Kobakhidze, a member of the parliamentary majority said during Georgian First Channel’s live broadcast covering public discussions on constitutional amendments.
As Irakli Kobakhidze noted, “for that reason mentioned above, the ruling party gave preference to the proportional electoral system.”
MP pointed out that “the opposition missed the chance to support a fully-proportional system by 2020,” however, “the government did not change the mind and fully proportional electoral system will enter into force from 2024.”
Georgian First Channel has broadcasted nationwide public discussions on constitutional amendments today.
Tina Bokuchava, a member of the United National Movement, and Sergi Kapanadze, a representative of European Georgia, refused to participate in the discussion.
