Georgia, Tbilisi, April 26 / Trend N. Kirtzkhalia /
The Georgian Foreign Ministry has invited the U.S. National Democratic Institute (NDI) and the International Republican Institute (IRI) as international observers for the parliamentary elections of 2012.
According to the Foreign Ministry, Georgian Foreign Minister Grigol Vashadze sent letters to several international organisations to ensure the greatest possible number of international observers at these year's elections. The matter rests in the short term missions, as well as long term monitoring.
"Letters were sent to the NDI president Ken Volak and the IRI president Lorne Craner," the ministry said. "Georgia's readiness was stressed to invite international observers as soon as possible to monitor the electoral process and the elections."
