Five MPs of three opposition parties and two independent MPs have formed a new faction in the Georgian state legislature with the name Charles Michel’s Reforms Group. 

The chair of the new faction, Republican MP Khatuna Samnidze, has stated that the faction ‘will do its utmost’ for the full implementation of the EU-mediated agreement which was proposed by the European Council President Michel back in April 2021 and was signed by the majority of Georgian political parties. 

The signing of the agreement, which includes notes on Georgian election issues as well as fundamental electoral and judicial reforms, resolved a several-month political crisis in Georgia which began after the 2020 parliamentary elections.
