Special Statement of Georgian Non-Governmental Organizations
In light of the ongoing tense political developments in the country, we are calling on the government:
To reject the use of any type of force against the demonstrators and avoid the escalation of the situation, which could potentially result in a state of full-fledged political instability and transform into events that could go beyond all legislative frameworks.
To act in line with the principles of democracy enshrined in the Constitution to preserve public peace, as recommended by international organizations. To take preventive measures in order to neutralize all risks associated with the abuse of power on the part of law enforcement.
To act in line with the principle of political accountability, to participate in constructive dialogue with the opposition and civil society, and work with them to ensure the transition into a fully proportional election system.
