National Movement’s Agitation Posters on the Façade of State Institution

Khoni District Election Commission provided registered political parties with the list of places where they can place election posters. All bus-stops and several buildings in Khoni district are on the list.

National Movement has been placing election posters on the buildings in the town and villages for a week already. Their posters are placed on the façade of the Khoni fire station. The employees of this service state they brought the posters and placed them on the façade. The same posters are placed on shops too.

“Two young people came and brought these posters. They said they were from the National Movement and had to paste posters on the wall. I have advertisements of various food companies on the façade and told them they could put the posters up if there was space. I did not resist because it does not change anything if they paste any posters here,” a shop-assistant told humanrights.ge

Head of Georgian Dream’s Khoni office Aleko Vekua said: “DEC gave us a list of places where we can place election posters and we will paste them in the near future. Hopefully there will be enough place for every political party and nobody will tear off the posters from the façades.”

Fire-service is a state institution in accordance with Georgian law. So, Article 46 Part II of the Election Code, placing election posters in a public agency, is violated.
