“Life makes its corrections in everything, while a responsible leading political force  must  meet adequately to the emerging challenges the country is facing and understand a pulse of the large public “ – Bidzina Ivanishvili, Chairman of the “Georgian Dream – Democratic Georgia” Party announced on his briefing on June 24 

As Bidzina Ivanishvili indicated, the 2020 Parliamentary Elections will be held according to the proportional system, with zero election barrier

The political group “Georgian Dream – Democratic Georgia” announced  its large-scale political reform – to conduct  the 2020  Parliamentary Elections according to the  proportional system with a zero electoral barrier. I repeat – zero barrier. The society is well aware of that it was just “the Georgian Dream” the initiator of the constitutional changes within the scales of which it was decided that in conditions of the parliamentary democracy, a proportional system of elections meets well the European standards of multi-partial and pluralistic political representation in the state power. It was resolved within the same frameworks as well that a transition to this electoral system would be better to implement in 2024, because,  several years are required for more strengthening of the political parties, their  crystallization around values, more consolidation and increase of competitiveness. Just because of these reasons we fixed 2024 as an  optimal term for the electoral reform guaranteed by the Constitution, especially in the current  conditions where the mixed electoral system  is absolutely democratic, well established andtested in numerous countries of traditional democracy; But, life makes its corrections in everything, while a responsible leading political force  must  meet adequately to the emerging challenges the country is facing and understand a pulse of the large public “ – Bidzina Ivanishvili declared
