According to the US Ambassador to Georgia, Ian Kelly, he fully agrees with the statements of the international observers that the elections were well administered, competitive and overall, reflected the will of the people.

The US diplomat congratulated the Georgian people on the successful completion of the elections.

“First of all, I would like to congratulate the Georgian people on successfully completing the two rounds of elections. We fully subscribe to what the international observers said: that the elections were well administered, competitive and in general, reflected the will of people. I think the elections showed once again that Georgia is a leader in terms of democratic development”, said the Ambassador.

According to him, as the observation mission observers noted, they have some concerns regarding some incidents of violence and intimidation. “We hope that these incidents will be investigated in a fair and balanced way”, he said.

According to him, he would encourage the Georgian parliament to operate in a consensus manner.

“It is important all parties to work together for the common goals, which are: developing democracy, creating jobs and integrating with the Euro-Atlantic community. The United States is looking forward to working with all segments of the Georgian society and political system to attain these goals”, he said.
