“Today is the election when polarization must end. I hope I voted for depolarization,” Georgian President Salome Zourabichvili told reporters after casting her ballot in the local elections.
According to her, local elections are the most important in the democratic process.
“These are elections where citizens can really choose the people who will decide on local issues tomorrow in their place, in the village, in the city. At the same time, this is where the polarization should probably be least. In general, this is an election when polarization must end. I hope so, and I voted for depolarization,” said Salome Zourabichvili.
Local elections are going on in Georgia. Georgian voters elect mayors in Tbilisi and 63 municipalities on October 2.
