Massive win for Saakashvili in Georgia, exit polls say
Exit polls gave a massive win to a political party headed by Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili on Wednesday, setting the stage for opposition claims of vote fraud, dpa reported.
Saakashvili's United Nation Movement received 63 per cent of the popular vote in national polling, exit polls said.
The President's closest rival, the United Opposition group, will receive approximately 15 per cent of ballots cast, the exit polls found.
The poll numbers if born out by official counts would allow the UNM and Saakashvili to dominate the country's politics and make decisions at will to include changing the constitution.
Two other small political players appeared on track to place MPs in parliament, a party led by television announcer Georgy Targamadze with 9 per cent and the Labour Party with slightly more than 5 per cent.
