The Czech Republic welcomes the peaceful solution to the confrontation, which resulted from the Parliamentary elections held on November 2nd, 2003. The Czech Republic values the role of President Eduard Shevarnadze.

His resignation as a reaction to the public unrest is a crucial step to an undisturbed transfer of power in a constitutional way. It is the belief of the Czech Republic that acting President Nino Burdhanadze and the provisional administration will ensure the holding of new parliamentary and presidential elections. The Czech Republic expects this to take place at a time prescribed by the Constitution and according to European democratic standards. The Czech Republic hopes that all Georgian political forces will try to find a compromise leading to peace, stability and prosperity in the country.
