CEC Announces Tentative Dates for Repeat and Runoff Elections
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 16 Oct.'16 / 18:43

Central Election Commission (CEC) said on Sunday that second round contests for majoritarian MP seats in 50 single-mandate constituencies are expected for October 30 and likely date for repeat elections for majoritarian MP in four precincts is October 22.

The dates will be officially set after formal procedures are finalized, according to CEC, which also said that it decided to announce tentative dates “for election stakeholders and because of high public interest” towards the issue.

Repeat elections will be held in one precinct of Marneuli and three precincts of Zugdidi municipality.

Voting in precinct No.48 of election district No.36 in the village of Kizilajlo of the Marneuli municipality was disrupted by a violent incident when a group of opposition supporters tried to storm the polling station. Six men were arrested and sent to pretrial detention in connection to the incident.

UNM party’s majoritarian MP candidate Akmamed Imamquliyev is leading the race in Marneuli over his closest competitor, GDDG’s Tamaz Naveriani, with 47.91% to 43.41% of votes. Imamquliyev, according to preliminary results, has a lead by a margin of 907 votes and the repeat vote at the invalidated precinct should decide the outcome of the race in Marneuli – whether there will be an outright winner or the race will go into the second round.

Repeat elections for majoritarian MP will also be held at three precincts – No.38, No.79, and No.108, of election district No.66 in Zugdidi Municipality.

Georgia’s ex-first lady Sandra Roelofs of UNM and GDDG’s Edisher Toloraia are the main contenders for the majoritarian seat from that election district of Zugdidi – the latter has a lead by a margin of 372 votes.

Two precincts in Zugdidi municipality – No.79 and No.108, in the village of Jikhashkari of were invalidated after they were raided during which polling materials were destroyed. Two men were arrested in connection to these incidents – one of the, supporter of the GDDG ruling party was sent to pretrial detention.
