Georgia has improved in rating by 15 steps in the freedom of speech

Georgia is ranked #69 out in 180 countries in the 2015 World Press freedom Index with a score of 27.7.

After electoral turmoil in 2012 and 2013, Georgia has begun to reap the fruits of the reforms undertaken in the recent years, even if political rivalry has sometimes hampered their implementation. Transparency about media ownership has improved, although news outlets are politically polarized and still not very independent.
