Elections in Georgia: 2020 Parliamentary Elections
On Saturday, October 31, Georgian voters will elect all 150 members of Parliament. Recent reforms to Georgia’s Electoral Code have been followed by an increase in the number of competing political parties and greater diversity of political platforms. The elections will determine whether the ruling party will remain in power, if it will need to expand its coalition or if a different political actor will take over the majority.
