The European Union welcomes the constructive statements of political opponents following the parliamentary elections in Georgia, RIA Novosti quotes Maja Kocijancic, spokesperson to EU High Representative Catherine Ashton, as saying on Tuesday.
"We congratulate both sides with instructive and constructive character of public statements that they made yesterday immediately after the polls were closed," she told reporters in Brussels.
According to Kocijancic, the EU intends to continue close cooperation with Georgia and follow the political and economic approximation with the country.
The parliamentary elections in Georgia were held in Georgia on October 1. Around 14 parties and two political blocs participated in the elections.
Parliamentary elections were held on a mixed - list-majority system. Around 150 MPs must be elected - 77 on the lists (a passing barrier of five per cent), 73 - single-seat constituencies.
Parliament will receive more authority in 2013 after amendments to the Constitution take effect resulting in the president's power being reduced.
