It’s a bit strange for me that the presidential candidates do not focus on pre-election programs, – Carl Hartzell Ambassador of the European Union to Georgia told the journalists.
According to Ambassador, during his first two weeks stay in Georgia, nobody was talking about the elections, but the situation changed instantly and the stakes increased.
“During first two weeks of my presence in Georgia, nobody was talking about the elections, while I thought that all would talk about it. People say that these elections are not of great importance and therefore no one is doing anything, but then everything changed. This was the second wave and instantly all the stakes have increased”, – Carl Hartzell said.
The ambassador expressed concern that the presidential candidates do not focus on pre-election programs. In addition, as Carl Hartzell says, no one speaks about the constitutional power of the president, which is quite reduced. However, according to his assessment, the president’s institute is important and useful in various directions.
The ambassador says that he has met several presidential candidates having different opinions. However, the ambassador notes that during the pre-election campaign, the candidates do not focus on their opinions.
