The report of Human Rights Center Monitoring 2018 Presidential Elections in Georgia presents the monitoring results of the first round of the Presidential Elections 2018.

The HRC observers monitored the Presidential Elections in three regions of Georgia - Kakheti, Shida Kartli and Kvemo Kartli regions.

Besides stationed observers, HRC monitored the elections with mobile groups, which were composed of journalists and cameramen of the HRC online newspaper humanrights.ge. Throughout the Election Day, the information about observed violations was collected and processed in the head office and published on the online newspaper of the HRC www.humanrights.ge in Georgian and English languages. The information was sent to media organizations.

The violations observed in the first round of the 2018 Presidential Elections were: campaigning and mobilization of voters in the vicinities of the polling stations, which included the control of the free will of voters; activity of the nongovernmental observation organizations who supported political parties; low qualification of the PEC members and other procedural violations, including lack of knowledge of election procedures by the voters.
