Democracy NOW at the Folklore State Centre of Georgia საქართველოს ფოლკლორის სახელმწიფო ცენტრი
- Ministry for Culture Miriane Odisharia email@example.com
Clandestine and manipulative actions are currently being undertaken to put into place an unsuitable candidate as the Director of the Folklore State Centre of Georgia.
This is a result of yet another purge which threatens an emerging democracy. This petition calls for a clear, transparent and considered process to take place with consultation across a broad cultural community before any decisions are made.
The aim of the appointment ought to be to focus on the future of Georgian Folklore and how it is developed and represented on the world stage.

Staff rallies at Folklore State Center of Georgia
The staff of the Folklore State Center of Georgia held a symbolic protest outside the office of the center today. They nailed the entrance door of the building with a banner today and presented their statement of five demands addressed to the Minister of Culture.
The staff of the center is objecting to the decision of the supervisory board of the center, which elected Giorgi Donadze as the director yesterday. They say both the staffing of the board and the election of the new director was carried out with violations and call on the ministry not to sign the decree on Donadze`s appointment.
The previous director of the center Giorgi Ushikishvili was dismissed from the position on the grounds of the violations revealed in the office by the state audit office. Giorgi Ushikishvili and the staff of the center assert that the processes are controlled by Anzor Erkomaishvili.
We, the undersigned, citizens from across the world who care deeply about Georgia, call on the Ministry for Culture to begin a fair, open, democratic and transparent process to elect a person of integrity, experience and vision to become the director of The Folklore State Centre of Georgia.
