A few days before the Georgian election Ambassador Kelly Degnan spoke to acting Public Affairs Officer Christopher Anderson to address frequently asked questions about Georgia"s Parliamentary Elections, including the United States’ position and the impact of the U.S. Presidential Elections on the strategic partnership of our two countries.
“The process that should be safe and inclusive and credible. And that viewed as legitimate by the people. In a fair election, in a free election, there is no room for voter intimidation, or vote buying, or forcing people to photograph their ballot or threatening them to fire them if they vote for one party, or promising to promote them if they vote for another party. The free election means one person – one vote. No ballot box stuffing, no multiple voting, no cheating to win.
I think, Georgians will join us in watching carefully their elections, to see whether Georgia is able to uphold the high standards, that it is committed to because Georgians deserve to be able to cast their votes in free and fair elections this year”, - said the Ambassador.
