We continue to encourage you to protect the legitimacy of 2020 parliamentary elections and ensure they are guarded against both internal and external interference, US Congressmen Adam Kinzinger, Gerald Connoly, Eliot Engel and Michael McCaul said in the letter sent to Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia.
“As Georgia moves toward the 2020 parliamentary elections under Georgian Dream’s leadership, we continue to encourage you to protect the legitimacy of these elections and ensure they are guarded against both internal and external interference. In your response letter, dated December 17, 2019, you pledged that the 2020 elections would be held to the highest standards. Yet, recent reports indicate that Facebook had to shut down an extensive network of accounts funded by Georgian Dream. The fact that these accounts were apparently spreading anti-democratic, anti-Western sentiments is simply unacceptable,” the letter reads.
The letter was published by the Administration of the Government of Georgia on its official Facebook page.
