Davit Darakhvelidze – run-off is caused by increased election threshold
‘’The run-off of the self-government elections is a big step towards democracy,’’ – assesses the Minister of Refugees Davit Darakhvelidze about the results of the self-government elections.
As he told reporters today, before the government session, the run-off was caused by the increased election threshold. ‘’No government dared to do it before,” – Darakhvelidze said.
‘’As we know, run-offs will be held in eight self-governing towns. In my opinion, this shows the quality of democracy. Naturally it was caused because of the 50-% election threshold established by our government and no government dared to do it before. Without such a threshold, all our candidates would win. That’s why I reckon that this is a big step made towards democracy,” – Darakhvelidze stated.
