Democratic Developments in Georgia

Morgan Ortagus, Department Spokesperson

The United States supports a secure, prosperous, and democratic Georgia.  We commend the recent progress made on the fourth wave of judicial reform and support the ongoing dialogue between representatives of the ruling party and the opposition parties on electoral reform.  We urge the Georgian government to reinforce its commitment to the principles of democracy, individual liberty, and rule of law by ensuring that its judicial and prosecutorial system is free of political bias.  The United States will continue to work with its strategic partner Georgia to promote the rule of law and accountable institutions.
