Observation missions which arrived in Georgia from the USA will monitor parliamentary elections on October 1.
"Firstly the choice has to be made by the Georgian people. A fair and transparent process is important for us, not the election results. These elections have to be held in a competitive environment and voters have to be able to make their choice. We are here to support the choice of
Georgians," the president of International Republican Institute Kenneth Wollack reported in an interview to TV outlet 'Rustavi-2'.
The mission consists of representatives from seven countries: the former and acting members of the US Congress, former diplomats and members of parliament, representatives of non-governmental organisations and regional experts.
Members of the observation mission will meet with representatives of government and the election administration, political parties and civil sector, mass media and international organisations.
