The date of the parliamentary elections in Georgia is set by law and cannot be changed, Central Election Commission spokesperson Eka Azarashvili said after commenting on an appeal filed by NGOs seeking to allow Georgians living abroad to vote on September 29 or September 30.
"The date of the elections is appointed by the President, and it is defined by the Constitution. We can not move the date. It doesn't depend on our will. Accordingly, the date of the election cannot be changed," Azarashvili said.
NGOs and civil society demanded that the opportunity to vote in the elections on September 29 or September 30 were given to Georgian citizens, living abroad.
