Elections and Political Processes

Language: English | Georgian

On October 1, 2012, the people of Georgia came out in record numbers for what turned out to be historic Parliamentary elections. Nearly ten years after the controversial Parliamentary elections in 2003 led to the Rose Revolution, Georgia’s President Saakashvili conceded that his party had been defeated by an opposition coalition in what was the country’s first peaceful and democratic transition of power. By achieving this milestone, Georgia set a regional example of commitment to democracy. In the lead-up to and during the next election cycle—which includes 2016 Parliamentary, 2017 local, and 2018 Presidential elections, USAID will continue to deepen and institutionalize Georgia’s electoral and political processes.
