I do not agree with any legislative changes that would impose harassment on the opposition - Kelly Degnan

I do not agree with any legislative changes that would impose harassment on the opposition, said the US ambassador to Georgia.

“I do not agree with the initiative and any legislative changes that would impose harassment on the opposition or restrict their access to the media. The voter must have the full information he or she needs to hold the next leaders accountable. I hope this bill is reviewed before adoption. Georgia’s democracy now needs a developed, successful opposition and a responsible, effective ruling party.

At the same time, Georgian voters supported nine parties, and a single-party Parliament would be an unfortunate setback. It was a clear statement. Voters wanted a diverse representation in parliament”, - said Kelly Degnan.
