America to Pay Georgian Elections

America to Pay Georgian Elections. 16216.jpegIt seems everybody is trying to improve the Georgian election environment except the current government. The opposition suggested their proposals should be considered as long ago as last November. But only when the great patron in the shape of the United States interfered Mikhail Saakashvili and his companions gave up. Unless there is at least the appearance of some changes, there are no subsidies in sight. The Washington administration developed a program of reinforcement of democracy especially for the Caucasian republic


as Europe is already squinting at Tbilisi, full of doubts that everything is in order with political and other liberties in the country.

The forces of opposition tried to start the negotiations on the improvement of the election environment a year after the presidential elections, when Mikhail Saakashvili occupied the post of "father of his country" once again. Then the American National Democratic Institute decided to help the Party of the Conservative, Republican Party, "Free Democrats", "Ways of Georgia", The New Right, Christian Democrats and Party of the People. As is becoming clear now, the United States did not leave their attempts to democratize their Georgian protégé and his government. However, when the Parliament saw the proposal it saw a kind of ultimatum in it and refused to discuss it.

The American suzerain gave himself the trouble to allocate a small amount to change the situation not only in the election environment but in terms of the liberty of mass media. Of course, the amount immediately disappeared in the bottomless pockets of the "shareholders". However, America is not going to leave Georgia to the mercy of fate. For the entire previous year it studied the difficulties encountered by the "lighthouse of democracy" and came to the conclusion: no clean job has been made of it and the mission has not been finished.

The new report the Department of State, contrary to the expectations of the Georgian government, turned out to be not very liberal. The declarations on a fine business climate, on the existence of the most independent courts in the world and on free elections turned out to be such dust that even Washington got worried. It became quite unexpected for the American administration that the pressure of the authorities on the judicial system was so big: of the dozens of thousands of prisoners in the country the majority are under arrest for political motives. The victory over corruption that Mikhail Nikolozovich likes bragging about so much has wonderfully turned into sheer criminal prosecution.

But the most curious conclusion was made by the American establishment after studying the democratic institutions and at the attempt to find out how important is the participation of citizens in state politics. Some Georgian non-governmental organization played a significant role in the creation of an opinion on the most democratic country in Eastern Europe. Tinatin Khidasheli, a representative of the Republican Party, made a visit to the USA, where she tried once again to reach out to the American government structures. To all appearances, she managed it quite well.
