Member of the European Parliament, Co-President of the Euronest PA, Andrius Kubilius, applauds the leadership of European Council President Charles Michel in finding a solution for the political and democratic crisis in Georgia.
MEP Kubilius believes the same type of leadership within the EU is very much needed to find the EU’s active role in solving the “Belarusian crisis”.

The ruling Georgian Dream party, as well as opposition parties, including Lelo for Georgia, Citizens, Republicans, Strategy Agmashenebeli, Girchi, and Girchi – More Freedom signed the renewed EU-backed compromise paper earlier this week.
Several current and former members of the United National Movement and European Georgia have also signed the agreement individually, however, other representatives of both parties as well as the Labour Party rebuff to sign the document yet.
Charles Michel’s new proposal implies electoral and justice reforms, offers a pardon for all violations and convictions stemming from the 19-21 June 2019 protests and the conduct of repeat parliamentary elections in 2022 if the ruling Georgian Dream party fails to receive at least 43 % of votes in upcoming municipal elections.
