International reaction to the elections in Georgia

International reaction to the elections in Georgia

An indisputable fact: at the moment the international community believes that the Georgian opposition and voters are ready to come to terms with the “victory” of the GM, the opposition will sit in parliament, as in 2016. And by the way, no one really protested against the dubious elections in Georgia in 2018 and 2019.

Let me remind you that the OSCE statements in 2018 were quite harsh for the GD. But there were no protests, in fact, everyone accepted Salome Zurabishvili as president (many protested on Facebook, but in fact, Zurabishvili is still president). So why should foreigners assume things will be different this time? They cannot just declare the GD government unilaterally illegitimate, especially if they see that the opposition is ready to accept the election results and the GD government … and this is what has always happened …

If you don’t like it, then what’s going on, just prove them wrong. As Belarusians and Kirghiz did this year, and once Georgians did, but that was a long time ago.
