EU Congratulates Georgian Dream on Election Victory
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 3 Oct.'12 / 12:26

The generally positive conduct of parliamentary elections on 1 October, and the high level of voter participation underscore Georgia’s commitment to its democratic path, EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton and Štefan Füle, EU Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighborhood said in a joint statement on October 2.

"The EU congratulates the Georgian Dream coalition on its election victory. The Georgian people have now spoken. Both responsible government and constructive opposition are essential parts of a functioning democratic society,” the statement reads.

In the statement the EU called on all representatives elected to the new parliament “to work together in the interests of Georgia.”

“We take full note of ODIHR’s preliminary assessment of the conduct of the elections which considers that the process has shown a healthy respect for fundamental freedoms at the heart of democratic elections,” the statement reads. “We look forward to continued close cooperation with Georgia on our ambitious mutual agenda of political association and economic integration.”
