Christian Danielsson, the Personal Envoy of European Council President Charles Michel for the EU mediated dialogue in Georgia, has made a detailed proposal for a way ahead to the representatives of Georgian political parties. This effort follows the relaunching of the political dialogue by President Michel during his visit to Georgia on 1 March, and nine days of talks with political stakeholders, conducted by Danielsson in Georgia.
The proposal suggests that parties which took part in the dialogue will agree to enter Parliament and fully participate in parliamentary activities upon signing the agreement, and to conduct their duties until the next parliamentary elections with mutual respect and in recognition of the importance of unity in the interest of Georgia’s stability.
Also, Danielsson proposes that within one week of the signature of the agreement, a party represented in Parliament shall initiate an amnesty law for all violations and convictions stemming from the 19-21 June 2019 protests. At the same time, the Parliament shall address the perception of politicised justice through legislation.
The EU envoy also suggests an ambitious electoral reform aiming at fully proportional future parliamentary elections. According to the proposal, the Parliament shall adopt an ambitious judicial reform as the first step in a broad, inclusive and cross-party reform process, and introduce power sharing in Parliament.
