Georgia passes controversial law against foreign influence

Amid mass protests, Georgia's parliament has approved a contentious law aimed at regulating civil society by increasing scrutiny on NGOs receiving foreign funds. The legislation, labeled as the 'Law on Foreign Agents,' has sparked concerns among critics, including fears of stifling critical voices and jeopardizing Georgia's aspirations for EU membership.

Despite calls from the EU and the US to reconsider, the Georgian government proceeded with the law, prompting further public demonstrations and international disapproval. Georgia's president vows to veto the law, but the ruling party holds the power to override her decision, as pressure mounts from Western allies for the law's withdrawal to align with European values and prevent setbacks in Georgia's EU integration efforts.
