The EU membership questionnaire received in Georgia is not special, and it is the government’s job to fill in it, Parliament Speaker Shalva Papuashvili told journalists.
“There are tight deadlines for completing the questionnaire provided by the European Commission. The EU has compiled the questionnaire in a shorter timeframe, and we must respond to this by answering these questions quickly,” Shalva Papuashvili said.
The parliament speaker added that a reduced number of questions might seem like a lot or a little to someone, but it is a voluminous job to be done by the government. He believes though everyone might be willing to engage in the process, it is far more important to support the government.
Oliver Varhelyi, the European Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement, handed over the EU membership questionnaire to the newly appointed Georgian Foreign Minister Ilia Darchiashvili in Luxembourg on April 11.
