United States Ambassador to Georgia Kelly Degnan said the United States would like to see Georgia’s constitutional amendments ‘accepted, adopted by a full parliament’ so that Georgia can have ‘a truly successful achievement and fulfilment' of the March 8 election agreement.

Ambassador Degnan said that both - opposition and ruling party – are trying to fulfil their part of the agreement. 

The March 8th agreement was reached by the political parties of Georgia. That was its real success; that they came together, they made tough compromises and they reached an agreement. Now we would like to see, everyone would like to see, the agreement, both parts of the agreement, fulfilled”, Kelly Degnan said.

She said, for the US, ‘it would be a real accomplishment if Georgia passed the constitutional amendments with full support, multiparty support’. 

That would show a real commitment to progress in the democratic process here and creating conditions for fair elections this fall. We understand that for the opposition, some of the opposition parties, further steps need to be taken to fulfil the joint statement part”, she added.

Ambassador Degnan made remarks at the opening of the orphanage for children with severe disabilities in Tbilisi earlier today. 

Thanks to this project, children with disabilities will live in a home type environment and receive better medical care.
