Georgia, Tbilisi, Sept. 5 / Trend N.Kirtskhalia /
Georgia by holding parliamentary elections, must prove to the world that is a free country, Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski said on Wednesday at a joint briefing with Georgian and Swedish Foreign Ministers.
He noted that Poland is closely monitoring the pre-election situation in Georgia through its observers, who are in the ODIHR mission.
"We welcome the reforms that have been carried out and are carried out to improve the electoral legislation, there is a desire to provide equal opportunities to the political forces," Sikorski said.
He stressed that the EU countries are closely monitoring pre-election situation and will send observers directly to the polls to put on the table on October 2 an objective assessment of the elections.
In turn, the Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt expressed hope that Georgia will hold better election than in the former Soviet republics. He said that there is more free and competitive election situation in Georgia today than in the past.
