About 30 opposition parties present new model for 2020 elections

Opposition parties are offering the Government a new model for the 2020 elections. About 30 parties - including European Georgia, UNM, Lelo, Development Movement, Democratic Movement - United Georgia and etc. - are the authors of the initiative.

According to the document, the Parliament shall consist of 77 members elected under proportional system and 73 members elected under majoritarian system. As a result of the elections held under the proportional system, the seats will be distributed among the political parties and election blocs that receive at least 3% of votes. The rules and terms for participation in elections, as well as the rules for the distribution of seats, shall be determined by the election law.

This model will be sent to the Venice Commission and ODIHR for consideration.
