Georgia rallies for EU membership

Tbilisi, December 09, 2023, The Europe Today: Hundreds of people rallied in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi on Saturday, voicing support for the country’s candidacy to join the EU.

The rallygoers played drums and waved Georgian flags along Tbilisi’s central street, Rustaveli Avenue.

Organizers of the rally said “Georgians’ unity holds decisive importance on our path towards the EU.”

Georgian President Salome Zourabichivili attended the event, calling it a “a demonstration of the people’s will and choice that has been reflected in many initiatives.”

“This latest initiative, which we are all joining, loudly voices our main wish to the European Union — that we want Europe,” she added.

The EU on December 15 is expected to decide whether Georgia will be granted candidate status for membership in the 27-country bloc.
