"European Socialists" met with the candidate for the chairmanship of the Central Election Commission, Giorgi Kalandarishvili

პოლიტიკურიParliamentary Political Group - "European Socialists" met with the candidate for the chairmanship of the Central Election Commission, Giorgi Kalandarishvili and talked about his future visions and planned activities to improve the electoral process.
🔷 According to the chairman of the political group, Fridon Injia, it is unacceptable for the European Socialists to elect a chairman of the Central Election Commission for a term of six to six months if the candidate fails to win the support of at least two-thirds or the majority of the full parliament.
. “The Central Election Commission is one of the most important institutions in the country, which should be independent and impartial. We talked about the future plans of the Central Election Commission. We also talked about a survey conducted by the National Democratic Institute (NDI), which shows that trust in the work of the Central Election Commission is undermined. We consider this as one of the indicators of how the CEC works. "At the same time, we had a question about how correct it is that if a candidate fails to get the support of 90 votes of the members of parliament, the chairman will be elected for only 6 months, when the parliament elects judges with 76 votes for life," said Fridon Injia.
. “After listening to all the candidates, we will decide who we will support. A priori we can only say that it is unacceptable for us to elect a chairman of the Central Election Commission for six or six months. "Practically, the election marathon starts once every three months, and instead of this agency concentrating on serious changes in the election process, we actually get a constant marathon of who will become the chairman," said David Zilfimian.
Giorgi Kalandarishvili, the candidate for the chairmanship of the Central Election Commission, expressed his hope that he will become the chairman elected with multi-party support, because there are all preconditions for that.
. “I have been, am and will be open to any constructive, business-like meetings and relationships, not only with the election of the CEC chairperson, but with any issues that are important to the electoral process and procedures. "During the meeting, there was a constructive criticism of our activities in order to further improve the work of the administration, its development and further transformation," - said Giorgi Kalandarishvili.

🇬🇪 Georgia should have a multi-vector foreign relations - Fridon Injia.

🔷 "The initiative to draft a resolution on the events in Ukraine was taken by a certain part of the opposition parties, which I would say is a destructive opposition. For a year, they practically did not participate in parliamentary activities. However, they took part some outside, some in Parliament, some on the street. "Instead, they are being paid in full," said Fridon Injia, chairman of the European Socialists parliamentary group, during a live broadcast on Alt Info on Comments Day.

🔷 According to him, this part of the opposition wants to cause unrest in Georgia. They tried to prove that the 2020 parliamentary elections were rigged, but they did not succeed. After which they raised the issue of holding a series of by-elections, which also failed. They were left with only to try their best to create unrest in the country and use the situation in Ukraine for that.

🔷 "No country has made any request for support or any other appeal regarding Ukraine. We even run first. this time. "Maybe something is wrong with us, maybe we came out with Ukraine and get involved in this big misunderstanding," said Fridon Injia.

.🔷 "Our party believes that we should be dignified. Let's keep an eye out… Some ray of light also appeared in relation to Russia. For example, 3 + 3 format, direct air traffic was restored. With the policies that our government has pursued, there have been some achievements in the economic direction. I mean, the gross domestic product exceeded two marks. Can you imagine? While there is no diplomatic relationship, there is economic activity, and there is some progress in that direction. If this relationship had existed 2-3 years ago, this figure would have been twice as high. We, with our policy, took out of the pockets of our population what income they could get. This is betrayal. This is what is hitting our country, "said Fridon Injia.

🔷 "Ukraine is a close country to us, a brotherly country. But it is not as fraternal as Ukraine for Russia. Every second Ukrainian family has relatives in Ukraine and vice versa, every second Ukrainian family has relatives in Russia. However, we are very good friends. I will tell you more, when there was a war in Abkhazia and the refugees were being transferred to Mestia, then the Ukrainian pilots stood by us selflessly. Even now, we stand by the Ukrainians in every sense. No need to supply weapons. On the contrary, we must do everything we can to keep the fire burning. This is our task, "said Fridon Injia.

🔷 As for the resolution, he believes that Georgia should refrain at this stage and monitor developments.

🔷 "Our interest is clear to everyone. These are economic issues, those lost territories, the socio-economic situation of our country. Our party believes that in this case it is better to refrain from any statements and resolutions so as not to harm ourselves. If the opposition registers the draft in parliament, then our political group will also register our version of the draft resolution. This resolution calls for, of course, that all sovereign states have sovereign rights, that the country has the right to unite in any organization, in any political or military union. This should be the sovereign right of every independent country. Whether they will accept these ten countries in this or that organization is another matter. It is already important here what conditions are being talked about and so on. "- said Fridon Injia.

🔷 According to the chairman of the "European Socialists", the policy pursued for 30 years in the country has not yielded results.

🔷 "We have lost territories. The country was destroyed. There are deliberate actions on the part of the "National Movement" to block all the right decisions. The National Movement has been managing this for 18 years. Why am I saying this? "Georgian Dream has been under siege for 9 out of 18 years and they are trying their best to block all the right decisions," he said.

🔷 Asked by the host of the show whether the existing propaganda and mass media influence the formation of a wrong opinion in the society, in the opinion of Fridon Injia, of course, to a certain extent it reflects on the public opinion.

🔷 "The propaganda in the media today has a great impact on public opinion, but I am sure we will come to our senses and survive. Propaganda has a great impact on society. The media is in their hands. Nevertheless, there are people in the Georgian society who see the existing reality correctly and we will survive. For centuries there were empires and nothing was left of them and we, too, survived. Therefore, I think we will come to our senses and we must do what is acceptable for Georgia today and is beneficial. This relationship should be with Russia, Turkey, Azerbaijan, America. "We must have a multi-vector relationship, as it is in our party charter," said Fridon Injia.
