What do you think political parties should declare as their policy priorities during the campaign?

Tuesday, March 13
“The elections are approaching and political life is becoming strained. Parliamentary elections are very important for the country’s political life and its future depends on it. Parliament has a big role indeed. As for promised priorities, I think parties should have very clear goals and promises and also very realistic ones. Social-economic issues and foreign policy priorities must be at the top of their promises.”
Neli, Dentist, 37

“I do not know. We have so many problems and issues to be solved and discussed. Still, I think employment and creating jobs should be priority, as well as healthcare issues.”
Mariam, Student, 20

"I think first of all the parties should make it clear what their internal and foreign orientation would be. Thus, we, the potential voters, would define their further steps and make the relevant decision at the elections."
Maka, Doctor, 47

"The pre-election campaign is a very important period for the parties to make an effect on their potential electorate. I think politicians should visit all the regions and introduce [themselves] to the problems of each family all around the country. Those parties that take others' problems close to their heart would have a greater chance to succeed."
Nodar, Economist, 28

“I think that solving social problems and regulation of problems should be the main priorities.”
Anna, Journalist, 35

“I think that healthcare problems should be the main priority.”
Maia, Nurse, 42

“Economic problems, assistance of socially unprotected people, [and] economic issues should be the priorities.”
Levan, Student, 21

“In my opinion, solving economic problems should be a priority. They should work out a good strategy for Georgia’s economic development.”
Natia, Facilitator, 33

“Indeed, the most [important] issue is economic development. I think the parties should put an accent on this, especially how to improve the micro-business environment.”
Gogi, Entrepreneur, 28
