Public Defender: We Must Act to Prevent Future Elections with Current System

"Today's decision from Parliament is the decision to maintain an unfair system," Public Defender Nino Lomjaria wrote on social media.

“Unfortunately, I am abroad and have to respond to the recent developments from here.

"The only bright spot that gave me hope that the country would emerge from a permanent political crisis and take real steps towards democratic development was the shift to a proportional electoral system.

"Today's decision is the decision to maintain an unfair system. I do not know how many political resources are left, but we must do everything to prevent having future elections with the current system.

"The citizens of Georgia have the right to fair elections, the right to participate in political life and the right to have their political will adequately and proportionally reflected in the election results! These rights are being deprived by the electoral system we have today," she wrote.
