Until October 12, 2020, political parties and election subjects have received donations of GEL 29,485,838.81, of which GEL 15,041,225.54 (51%) has been donated to the ruling party – Georgian Dream-Democratic Georgia. A total of 35 electoral subjects have received donations, of which 96.9% of donations come at 10 political parties.
In 2020, 421 persons have made a donation of GEL 25,000 or more, most of whom (56.5%) are donors to Georgian Dream-Democratic Georgia. It is interesting to note that the “Alliance of Georgian Patriots” is in the third place with this indicator, while it is in the fifth place with the total amount of donations. Consequently, we can assume that a significant portion of their funding comes from large donors.
Civic Platform 20/20 calls on the State Audit Office to take an interest in the information provided in the report regarding donations. We suggest that people without entrepreneurial-economic activity, in most cases, make donations instead of other persons, or do the laundering of illegal money that is available in a political party itself. We can cite one notable example.
