According to the ambassador, it is Georgia that should decide what the process of deoligarchization will be like. According to him, this is the creation of a systemic framework that excludes unwanted interest and influence of individuals on politics.
“Deoligarchization is one of the 12 priorities of the European Union. This priority is not easy. The bill on deoligarchization was adopted in the second reading in the parliament. In our opinion, it is very important that this bill be sent to the Venice Commission, and then the Venice Commission will be able to make recommendations and these recommendations would be taken into account. This was also noted by European Commissioner Varheli when he was here last week. It is up to Georgia how to proceed when it comes to de-oligarchization. It concerns the creation of a framework, a system where there are no inconsistent interests and influence of certain individuals in relation to politics. The Georgians decided to implement this through the adoption of a law. We hope that this draft law will be sent to the Venice Commission for an opinion, and the recommendations of the Venice Commission will be taken into account,” said the EU Ambassador to Georgia.
