Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 14 Apr.'10 / 13:00

Central Election Commission (CEC) registered 26 political parties to run in the May 30 local elections.

Deadline for registration expired on April 13.

Total of 36 parties have applied for registration, but ten of them were rejected in registration on the grounds that six of them failed to submit required 30,000 signatures of supporters and four of them, including Greens Party had inaccuracies in the submitted signatures of supporters, CEC said.

Some of the registered parties are expected to form election blocs; for example, New Rights, Republican Party; Our Georgia-Free Democrats and Georgia’s Way are united in the Alliance for Georgia, which will be formally established as a bloc.

Christian-Democratic Movement (CDM), a leading party in the parliamentary minority group, announced about the plans to establish election bloc with On Our Own party and Christian-Democratic Peoples’ Party.

Ex-PM Zurab Nogaideli’s Movement for Fair Georgia, Conservative Party and Party of People are also united in an alliance known as National Council.
