The universal consensus of political players and actors would have been a victory for the country – the Prime Minister

The electoral system and the proportional electoral system, especially in a parliamentary republic, is a systemic reform and, of course, the universal consensus of political players and actors would have been a victory for the country. After all, this is not the victory of any political force - what we have achieved here is the victory of the country; what has taken place during the last two weeks is a guarantee of the further democratization and Euro-Atlantic integration of Georgia. Prime Minister of Georgia made this statement in Kutaisi, in response to a journalist"s question concerning the reform of the electoral system.


According to him, this is an opportunity to change the political elites in the country and to involve young people in politics, along with changing the political culture and ensuring the development of the country.


“Everyone remembers that ever since the 1990s, our political system has dreamed of the proportional system. This is an opportunity to change the political elites along with the political culture and the development of the country, to involve young people in politics, and I am certain that each and every one of us will feel this change in the coming years. It will not be easy - in fact, it will be quite difficult - but this was an unequivocally necessary step for the further democratization and Euro-Atlantic integration of the country, and one that we have taken. When resolving such systemic, fundamental issues, of course, it is desirable for every person and political force to set aside their personal interests and act in accordance with the interests of the country”, - said Giorgi Gakharia.
