MEP Rasa Jukneviciene: It sounds bad when a representative of the ruling party speaks or complains about bad opposition, these are not the rules of democracy

I'm sorry to say this, but it sounds bad when a representative of the ruling party speaks or complains about bad opposition, these are not the rules of democracy, - MEP Rasa Jukneviciene said said at the European Parliament’s Foreign Relations Committee session, where she talked about the situation in Georgia.

“This year will be a test of democracy for Georgia. We are watching carefully. You have many European friends in the European Parliament, not friends of one or the other political party, but friends of Georgia. We are concerned about whether the ruling party will pass the test of democracy or not. I'm sorry to say this, but I feel bad when a representative of the ruling party speaks or complains about bad opposition. These are not the rules of democracy. When we see an attack on the opposition, NGOs, the media, opponents, it does not help Georgia find new friends in the European Parliament. You can't persuade more people to support you,” the MEP said.
