I also have frequently taken part in demonstrations in front of the Parliament. I think it's a good message that they want to express their opinion, but if they want to appeal to the international guests, it would be better if they did it in English, - Claudia Roth, Vice-President of the German Bundestag, told journalists when commenting on the protests ongoing on Rustaveli Avenue.
As for the specific demands of the demonstrators, Claudia Roth positively evaluated the fact that the government agreed to conduct proportional elections in 2020.
"As far as I know, one of the demands was introduction of a new electoral system, which I think is very good. A different type of elections will be held in Georgia in 2020. I can imagine a proportional system and I can imagine that there will be diversity of political movements in the Parliament. This will likely unite parties, families, and I think there will emerge a necessity of creating a coalition, which is much better than the model when the winner enjoys all the power," said the Vice-President of the German Bundestag.
