In response to criticism from MEPs, Deputy Speaker of Parliament of Georgia Kakhaber Kuchava said that in some cases the members of European Parliament were provided with the misleading information.
He responded to the questions and criticism raised over the issue linked with transition onto the proportional system of elections for 2020 parliamentary polls.
According to him, negotiations on electoral system changes are still underway. The majority has already offered its version to the opposition and is now awaiting a response.
“The consensus means that both sides have to agree on something, we have presented the best version for the transition period, and fully proportional system of elections for 2024”, – he said.
As Kuchava notes, the information that tens of thousands of people are protesting this issue is also not true.
Critical remarks towards Georgian authorities have been made at European Parliament Committee on Foreign Affairs today.
