Georgia’s law on transparency of foreign influence is ‘incompatible with European standards’ and should be repealed

Totday, adopting a resolution based on a report by Claude Kern (France, ALDE) and Edite Estrela (Portugal, SOC), the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe expressed its deep concern at recent developments in Georgia. The situation “raises serious doubts” about the country’s commitment to international democratic norms and Euro-Atlantic integration, and about its willingness to honour its membership obligations and accession commitments to the Council of Europe.

The resolution was adopted by an overwhelming majority of PACE members, with only four votes against from EPP and SOC groups. The UEL group abstained.

The Parliamentary Assembly will observe the upcoming parliamentary elections in Georgia to take place on 26 October 2024. The delegation will be led by Iulian Bulai (Romania, ALDE).
