Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili today conceded defeat in Monday’s parliamentary elections, ending his party’s 9-year monopoly on power. But his party's loss marks a step forward for democracy in the country, completing a transfer of power through the ballot box that is rare for post-Soviet states.

...“There are very deep differences between us [UNM and Georgian Dream] and we believe that their views are extremely wrong, but democracy works in a way that Georgian people make decisions by majority,” the president said.
