I want to call on all Georgian political parties to gather and find a decision that will not pose a threat to Georgia’s democratic future – Marina Kaljurand, a member of the European Parliament from Estonia said.
The MEP commented about the ongoing political processes in Georgia that followed the parliament’s turning down of constitutional changes regarding transformation onto the proportional system of elections for the 2020 parliamentary polls in the country.
“This was a sudden decision since a clear and multi-party consensus was reached over the issue. The voting caused a disturbance in the public and forced people to turn to the street,” Kaljurand said.
The MEP also said that the European Parliament supported all eastern partners in their European aspirations and democratic reforms.
The European Parliament held a discussion about the ongoing developments of Georgia in the format of the plenary session on November 27.
