The ruling party is also heading to winning majority of seats in rest of 63 councils across the country.

In Tbilisi the ruling party is expected to take all 25 seats, which were for grabs through majoritarian, first-past-the-post contest in Tbilisi’s single-mandate constituencies, according to the early results.

In addition the National Movement party, which garnered 52.48% of votes, secured 14 seats from 25 available through party-list, proportional contest.

Alliance for Georgia, a four-party coalition, received 17.9% votes and secured 5 seats in the Tbilisi City Council, followed by Christian-Democratic Movement – 12%, translated into 3 seats in the council; National Council, a three-party coalition, has 8.3% and 2 seats and Industrialists Party – 6.3%, which means 1 seat in the Tbilisi City Council.
