Maka Bochorishvili, the chair of the European Integration Committee, emphasized that the merit of the current government’s opportunity to implement reforms for EU integration goes to the people.
Bochorishvili echoed the statements from opponents, suggesting that getting the EU status is the merits of the Georgian people rather than the government.
“Opponents are entangled in their narrative and cannot take that the country may receive candidate status. This achievement is the country’s merit – meaning the people and the government elected by them, along with the government’s efforts to integrate into the EU.
Since 2014, we have implemented a series of reforms dedicated to European integration, significantly influencing Georgia’s transformation to align more closely with the European Union. This will undoubtedly play a crucial role in the ongoing integration process.
When considering the geopolitical situation and acknowledging the people’s merit, it is the people’s merit that we have this government and the government’s ability to enact reforms for EU integration,” she said.
