Georgian Parliament Speaker Shalva Papuashvili has urged the International Republican Institute (IRI) and the National Democratic Institute (NDI) to stop conducting public opinion surveys and publishing their findings because “it provides nothing beneficial to people but deepens destruction and radicalism.”
“I’m not sure what the point is when the IRI and NDI continuously disclose some findings every few months. Both polls are discredited in society due to their discrepancies with reality,” Papuashvili noted in response to the International Republican Institute’s (IRI) latest poll.
According to the Parliament Speaker, the organisations waste money on surveys, which “everyone distrusts.”
On November 7, the International Republican Institute (IRI) released the findings of a new countrywide poll conducted in Georgia.
