Date Set for MP By-Elections
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 15 Feb.'13 / 14:24

MP by-elections in three single-mandate majoritarian constituencies to fill vacant seats in the Parliament will be held on April 27, according to a decision passed by the Central Election Commission on Friday.

By-elections will be held in Tbilisi’s Nadzaladevi constituency, as well as in Samtredia and Bagdati constituencies in the Imereti region.

Three seats in the Parliament became vacant after majoritarian MPs from the Georgian Dream coalition were appointed in the executive government shortly after the October elections – Tea Tsulukiani, who was elected in Tbilisi’s Nadzaladevi single-mandate constituency, became the Justice Minister; Kakha Kaladze, who won majoritarian race in Samtredia constituency became Energy Minister and Archil Kbilashvili, who was a majoritarian MP from Bagdati single-mandate constituency, was appointed as chief prosecutor.   

The Central Election Commission set the date of by-elections based on amendment to the election code, passed by the Parliament in December, according to which MP by-elections can be held either in April or October, instead of only October as it was previously envisaged.
