The Head of the Council of Europe Office in Georgia says that diplomatic corps are now focused on the dialogue between the ruling party and the opposition for the 2020 elections in Georgia as the Georgian constitution allows the transition to a fully proportional electoral system from 2024 and the problems related to election systems will be removed automatically.
According to Christian Urse, the meeting between the ruling party and the opposition, attended by the diplomatic corps, was a step forward for de-escalating tension over the electoral issues.
“We hope that the dialogue on electoral issues will continueThe Saturday’s meeting was a good step towards alleviating polarization. Georgia is moving to a completely proportional system.
This is already reflected in the Constitution and the recommendations of Council of Europe had the same message. Right now we are focusing on the dialogue on the 2020 elections and the ongoing process”, - said Urse.
