The International Republican Institute (IRI) publishes the results of a public opinion poll. According to the study, the society strongly supports Georgia's accession to the European Union. Also, as stated in the IRI press release, the respondent’s express dissatisfaction with the presence of Russian citizens in the country and express distrust of political parties.

85% of respondents fully or more or less support Georgia's European aspirations. Among them, the support of 60% remains unchanged, even if this choice leads to a rupture of trade relations with Russia.

"The demand among Georgian citizens for the country to become a member of the European Union is still high. Special mention should be made of the long—standing, unwavering desire of Georgian citizens to return to the European family, which is confirmed by our latest research," said Stephen Nix, Director of the Eurasian Office of the International Republican Institute.

According to the survey, trust in political leaders is low. Also, only 15% of respondents said that they trust political parties and 42% said that no political party expresses their interests.

At the same time, the public's desire to see more young people in politics is increasing and amounts to 79%.

According to IRI, the study was conducted in the period from September 13 to October 2, 2022 on behalf of the Research Center of the International Republican Institute by Dr. Rasa Alishauskine, a representative of Baltic Studies and Gallup. Field research was conducted by IPM. The data was collected during personal interviews. The sample included 1,500 respondents of voting age. The data were weighted by age, gender, region and size of the locality. The margin of error is +/- 2.5%, the response rate is 74%. The study was made possible thanks to the support of the American people through the US Agency for International Development.
