The parliamentary elections held in Georgia have made a positive impression on a member of Parliament Jean Marie Beaucaire, who observed the elections in composition of the OSCE PA mission.
"A lot of parliamentarians came from both the European Union and various countries of Europe to observe the elections. We, the members of the French Parliament, observed the elections, as non-governmental organizations. I am impressed with the elections, as well as good organization at the polling stations," Beaucaire said.
During observing the elections Beaucaire visited 12 polling stations, visited villages, including areas of densely populated by Azerbaijanis.
"As for the incidents, I did not see anything. What I saw was the people who came and voted in an organized way. With regard to results - I do not know yet. This is a victory for democracy," Beaucaire said.
Parliamentary elections took place in Georgia on Oct.1, which were attended by 14 parties and two political blocks.
In 2013, after amendments to the Constitution will take effect, the Parliament will receive more authority, and the rights of the head of state will be curtailed.
