We expect that the promise on moving to proportional system will be delivered on - Louisa Vinton

The promise was made and we expect that the promise will be delivered on, - Louisa Vinton, Resident Representative of the UNDP in Georgia said while commenting on the move to a proportional electoral system.

According to her, the proportional system will give all political parties a chance to portray themselves, which is a positive thing.

“I would like to point out that the transition to a proportional system that will allow all parties and political entities to portray themselves in Georgian politics is a very positive direction. It is also very important that the promise was made in this regard and of course we expect that promise to be fulfilled.

I would also like to point out that negotiation has no alternative. Negotiation is the most powerful mechanism for resolving such a situation. We hope that this process will be discussed with each other. I welcome the initiative of the diplomats who facilitated the talks, but it should be noted that the decision is not in the hands of diplomats but Georgian politicians, both the opposition and the government.

There was a promise that a proportional electoral system would be introduced and we expect that the promise will be delivered on. The violence was getting alarming. We observe developments on a daily basis. It is noteworthy that the violence became alarming. We hope that this situation will be settled through negotiations”, - said Louisa Vinton.
