Leading members of the European parliament working on EU-Georgia relations have issued a joint statement on the second round of parliamentary elections in Georgia.

David McAllister (EPP, Germany), Marina Kaljurand (S&D, Estonia), Sven Mikser (S&D, Estonia), and Viola von Cramon-Taubadel (The Greens/EFA, Germany) once again congratulated Georgia, 'a key ally of the EU, on organising these elections despite a challenging epidemiological context'.

However, they 'regret the fact that opposition candidates did not contest seats in the second round'.
