U.S. Hails ‘Successful Completion’ of Elections in Georgia
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 1 Nov.'16 / 12:28

The United States welcomed “successful completion” of Georgia’s parliamentary elections, which affirmed the country “as a leader of democratic reform in the region,” the White House said in a statement released on October 31.

“We note that the OSCE election observation mission assessed both the October 8 elections and the October 30 run-offs as competitive and administered in a manner that respected the rights of candidates and voters. Political leaders from across the spectrum played an important role in urging all their supporters to show restraint during the electoral period so that Georgian voters could freely make their own decisions,” NSC Spokesperson Ned Price said. 

“We are concerned, however, about isolated incidents of violence and intimidation and urge accountability as well as a thorough and balanced investigation in accordance with the rule of law,” he said. 

“We now encourage political leaders from all parties to work together in pursuit of goals important to all Georgians, including democratic consolidation, security, and economic prosperity. We look forward to working with the new government and parliament to support Georgia’s democratic and economic development, sovereignty and territorial integrity, and its Euro-Atlantic aspirations,” the statement reads.
