Georgia, Tbilisi, Oct. 1 / Trend N. Kirtzkhalia /
Some 10.3 per cent of voters voted in the parliamentary elections in Georgia as of 10am, the Georgian Central Election Commission said today.
According to the CEC, several violations were registered. In particular, a constituency was not opened in Bucharest, due to the absence of commission members. A chairman of a constituency was beaten up in Gori and a ballot box was stolen in Martvili, but it was returned.
Parliamentary elections are being held in Georgia. Around 14 parties and two political blocs are taking part in the elections. Parliament will receive more authority in 2013 after amendments to the Constitution take force resulting in the president's power being reduced. The elections will be declared valid if the number of voters reaches one-third.
