Kavkasia TV has allocated more airtime to Tbilisi mayoral candidates and parties in its main news bulletins and selected talk shows, then other five TV channels being monitored in a pre-election period in frames of project supported by EU Delegation to Georgia and UN Development Programme (UNDP).
Kavkasia TV is followed by another Tbilisi-based TV station, Maestro, whose area of coverage, like the one of Kavkasia TV, is also mainly the capital city. National broadcasters follow Kavkasia and Maestro TVs, in particular the public broadcaster's First Channel, Imedi TV and Rustavi. Tbilisi-based Real TV allocated the least airtime to candidates and parties.
