European Georgia Joins European People’s Party
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 5 Sep.'17 / 13:59

The Movement for Liberty – European Georgia, which has the largest opposition faction in the Parliament, was accepted today as an observer member of the conservative European People’s Party (EPP).

The decision to accept the party into Europe’s largest political network was made at EPP’s Political Assembly in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The European Georgia applied for membership in January 2017, shortly after its split from the United National Movement, which ran the country from 2003 to 2012.

According to the EPP statute, the Political Assembly, on the proposal of the Presidency, may grant the observer member status to parties close to the EPP, from (i) European Union Member States, (ii) states which have applied for European Union membership as well as from (iii) European states that are members of the Council of Europe. 

The European Georgia will be the second EPP observer member from Georgia; UNM was incorporated as observer member in September, 2008.
