The Project “Supporting Transparency, Inclusiveness and Integrity of Electoral Practice and Process in Georgia”, like previous electoral assistance projects, is a part of the Action Plan for Georgia 2020-2023, a strategic programming instrument that aims to bring Georgia’s legislation, institutions and practices further into line with European standards in the area of human rights, the rule of law and democracy. Georgia is entering important electoral cycles of parliamentary and later, local elections. Considering the latest developments, it is crucial that Georgia maintains progress and achievements made towards ensuring integrity, transparency and quality of the electoral process.
