Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 31 Aug.'11 / 17:53

Candidates from the ruling National Movement party, as well as Christian-Democratic Movement (CDM) and Industrialists party will run in MP by-election in Telavi single-mandate constituency on October 2.

The majoritarian seat in Telavi, a town and district in eastern region of Kakheti, became vacant after Gia Arsenishvili, a ruling party lawmaker, who chaired parliamentary committee for human rights, died of heart attack in November 2010.

CDM, a leading party in the small parliamentary minority group, which now has seven MPs in 150-seat, named its candidate on August 31 and two other parties said they would nominate their candidates on September 1, a day before the deadline.

There are 56,932 voters registered in the Telavi constituency, according to the Central Election Commission.
