The chairman of the parliamentary political group "European Socialists" Fridon Injia calls Tamar Zhvania's decision to resign from the position of the chairman of the Central Election Commission unexpected.
"Tamar Zhvania's decision to resign from the position of the chairman of the Central Election Commission was really unexpected for everyone. I, as a member of the temporary investigation commission of the parliamentary elections of the Parliament of Georgia on October 31, got to know and studied the materials presented in connection with the elections in great depth. Therefore, I can confidently say that on the part of Tamar Zhvania's office, there was no falsification of the parliamentary elections of October 31, if we do not count only small flaws and technical errors," Fridon Injia said.
According to him, it should be noted that on July 8, the investigative commission will present a conclusion and a draft resolution regarding the results of the commission's work, according to which the commission has already developed certain recommendations to the election commission.
"I can evaluate the work of the commission as an important process that gave us the opportunity to study the issues of specific election precincts in depth. The commission is in its final stage, and I think the developed recommendations and suggestions will be important for the future work of the Central Election Commission," said Fridon Injia.
The chairman of the political group "European Socialists" believes that the campaign of curses and insults directed at Tamar Zhvania was wrong.
"I personally apologized to Tamar Zhvania during the meeting of the Investigative Commission in the Parliament for the great pressure, cursing and insults that were directed at her during the entire election process and after it. I believe that this was a wrong behavior towards Tamar Zhvania, and such statements really did not belong to her," Fridon Injia said.
According to him, this demonstration could have been conducted much better, but there were many objective reasons for this, as it was, the pandemic, the political situation in the country, controversy and pressure from various groups to realize their party goals. This is where the pressure on the Central Election Commission came from.
