EPP Calls for Implementing March 8 Deal, Rurua’s Release

The European People’s Party, a group of European center-right parties, has welcomed the March 8 Agreement between Georgia’s ruling party and opposition “as a key step to reduce tensions,” while voicing concern that Giorgi Rurua, pro-opposition Mtavari Arkhi TV’s shareholder, remains in custody.

“We call for full implementation of the Agreement and Rurua’s release,” EPP head Donald Tusk tweeted as he took part in the EPP summit on June 17.

EPP expects the upcoming election campaign in Georgia to be “free of vote-buying, intimidation of voters, impunity for violence and abuse of administrative resources, as international monitors reported in the last elections,” Tusk wrote.
