Parliamentary elections were held in Georgia on Oct.1. Around 14 parties and two political blocs participated in the elections.
Parliamentary elections were held in Georgia on a mixed - list, majority system. Around 150 MPs must be elected - 77 on the lists (a passing barrier of five per cent) and 73 - single-seat constituencies.
