According to him, the opposition itself demanded that the commission’s assessments not be mandatory for the nomination of candidates.
“There can be no rating. After all, we said what the goals of each stage are, and that the final guideline and goal is for political entities to nominate at least 7 candidates, and then we will decide which of these 7 will be elected.
Evaluation of candidates for the position of Ombudsman by points is conditional, none of them will have any rating indicators, advantages or preferences. Candidates who come out both in first and last place have equal chances. For example, if a certain candidate was not evaluated at all due to low popularity, no one should think that she loses her perspective at all, this is really not the case,” Sarjveladze said.
As a reminder, the evaluation team has completed the process of evaluating persons wishing to be nominated as candidates for the Public Defenders of Georgia in 2022. The group evaluated the candidates in several categories and according to the corresponding scores, the leaders are: Ana Abashidze, Nazi Janezashvili, Nugzar Kokhreidze, Giorgi Burjanadze and Sergo Makharadze.
