‘Georgia Dream’ accuses CEC of deliberately delaying counting process
Georgia, Tbilisi, Oct.2 / Trend, N.Kirtskhalia /
Supporters of the opposition coalition "Georgia Dream", which won the parliamentary elections in Georgia, according to preliminary data, are holding a protest action in front of the Georgian CEC on Tuesday. As writer David Magradze said, they demand to speed up the vote counting process.
"We believe that the CEC formed by the current government try to falsify something and make the people nervous. We will not allow them to play on the nerves of the people," he said.
The CEC spokesman Eka Azarashvili said that as a result of cyber attacks on the servers of the CEC process of posting election results on the Internet was delayed.
"It is an objective reality, and we are doing everything to publicize the data in time, there can be no question of delaying the vote counting process," she said.
The parliamentary elections in Georgia were held in Georgia on October 1. Around 14 parties and two political blocs participated in the elections.
Parliamentary elections were held on a mixed - list-majority system. Around 150 MPs must be elected - 77 on the lists (a passing barrier of five per cent), 73 - single-seat constituencies.
Parliament will receive more authority in 2013 after amendments to the Constitution take effect resulting in the president's power being reduced.
