Election Deals in Samtskhe- Javakheti Region


According to the 12 p.m. figures, the population of Akhaltsikhe and Adigeni Municipalities were rather active in casting their votes. In Precinct # 28, Akhaltsikhe district the ballots were cast in the ballot box which did not have a control sheet. However, observers failed to write any complaints on this violation. Adigeni Precinct # 4 and Varkhni Precinct # 7 were opened half an hour later than the time prescribed by the law. The election was conducted with many administrative violations in Abastumani Precinct # 2. The polling station was overcrowded. The voter has to go through 3 rooms in order to reach the ballot box and to finally cast the vote. The registry is in one room, the ballots booths are in the second and the ballot box was in the third one. The principle of secrecy of voting has been violated in this precinct as well. The voters said that the booths are not lighted well enough so they have to come out of the booths and vote publicly so that everyone sees which candidate they vote for.

There was a serous conflict in Abastumani Precinct # 2. Levan Lobzhanidze, the representative of the Republican Party stated that Anton Merabishvili, the representative of the ruling party offered him an illegal deal. Naturally Anton denied this information. The situation continued to be tensed at this polling station.
