According to US Ambassador Kelly Degnan, addressing undue influence in the political processes is what de-oligarchization is all about. The Ambassador answered a question relating to Davit Kezerashvhili’s letter and the importance of the adoption of the law on de-oligarchization.
“De-oligarchization is one of the 12 priorities listed by the European Commission because of its very important impact on society. Addressing the other 11 priorities will have a great impact on reducing, or even eliminating, the undue influence of anyone – any funding or any person – that is trying to influence the economic, political or social fabric here. Addressing undue influence in the political processes is what de-oligarchization is all about. That is why, if other priorities are dealt with in a genuinely effective way, I think the risk of undue influence will be eliminated, and certainly reduced”, said Kelly Degnan.
