 The Petition of Georgian Non-Governmental and Media Organizations

 We, the representatives of non-governmental and media organizations, while acknowledging the importance of fair and free elections, consider the related legislative amendments of December 2011 unacceptable, as they:

 Limit civic activity, property rights, freedom of expression and political activity;

  • Impede the democratic development of the country;
  • Impose severe and unjustified responsibilities on the voters;
  • Assign unlimited and unconstitutional powers to the Chamber of Control of Georgia, who is the main regulator of party funding in Georgia;
  • Pose grave threats to both citizens and civil society, including the media;
  • Deteriorate the election environment within the country.

  Thus, for all the reasons listed above, we respectfully demand change to the amendments of this legislation.
