"We share OSCE's assessment: Georgian parliamentary elections were competitive and fundamental freedoms were respected, but allegations of pressure on voters and blurred lines between party and state reduced public confidence. Flaws and documented violations should be addressed" - U.S. Department of State's Deputy Spokesperson, Cale Brown, wrote on his Twitter regarding the U.S. Embassy Statement on Georgia's Parliamentary Elections. 
 
"We call on all parties to address these deficiencies in advance of the second round and future elections. These efforts to corrupt the electoral process through voter intimidation, vote-buying, interfering with ballot secrecy, blurring of the party and official activities, and violence against election observers and journalists, while not sufficient to invalidate the results, continue to mar Georgia's electoral process and are unacceptable" - The US Embassy stated on Georgia's Parliamentary Elections 2020.
