Speaker: Welcoming New Year in peaceful, European Georgia

The Georgian Parliament Speaker, Shalva Papuashvili, extends his New Year greetings to the citizens.

He emphasizes that Georgia has achieved a significant victory in its modern history by earning the status of a candidate country for EU membership deservedly and with dignity.

“With your unwavering support, the Georgian government effectively navigated through the biggest challenges. Georgian society decisively rejected radicalism, placing trust in domestic and foreign policies focused on citizens’ well-being and national interests. Consequently, we welcome the new year of 2024 in a peaceful and European Georgia, more confident and strengthened. Heartfelt congratulations and profound gratitude for your continuous support and trust.

I extend my sincere appreciation to the defense forces, policemen, firefighters, medical personnel, civil servants, and all dedicated professionals. Your professionalism, dedication, and love for the motherland have fortified our country, sustaining hope for a better future even during the challenges posed by the natural disasters in 2023.

Happy New Year to the people living in the occupied regions, our Abkhazian and Ossetian compatriots, the Georgian diaspora, and all friends of the Georgian people. I am confident that together, we can successfully foster unity in our homeland and contribute to a shared European future.

Warm wishes for the New Year to the Mother Church, the spiritual leader of our people, standing as a worthy guardian of our spirituality and values.

On this day, I extend special congratulations to our parents, who have shared New Year’s traditions with us, and to our future generation—our children, with whom we share these traditions today. The unbroken chain of traditions between generations has safeguarded our identity as a nation for thousands of years.

Once again, I wish you all a Happy New Year 2024 filled with peace, prosperity, progress, and victories for our homeland,” said Shalva Papuashvili in his New Year’s greetings.
