AFG Challenges Results of Majoritarian Contest in One of Tbilisi’s District
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 4 Jun.'10 / 11:55

Alliance for Georgia said it was challenging early results of elections in one of Tbilisi’s single-mandate constituencies in an attempt to secure one more seat in the Tbilisi City Council.

Davit Saganelidze of New Rights Party, part of Alliance for Georgia, was running in majoritarian contest in one of single mandate constituencies of Tbilisi’s Vake district. According to the early results a ruling party candidate, Vakhtang Natsvlishvili, has a narrow lead over Saganelidze; but the latter claims that his rival candidate gained more votes only as a result of “falsification” that occurred during the vote count in several precincts of the constituency, which should become a reason for a repeat vote.

As of late June 3, according to Central Election Commission, vote results of only five precincts have been annulled - all in provinces, including three in Lagodekhi, Mestia and Mtskheta districts and two precincts in Sagarejo district.

Voting for majoritarian candidates was not held at all in three precincts, located in Tsalka, Tsageri and Oni districts, because of the problems related to majoritarian contest ballot papers.

Repeat elections in all of these precincts will be held tentatively on June 12, according to the Central Election Commission.
