The Georgian Dream party has prepared an initiative to tighten sanctions on cases of voter coercion, intimidation and secrecy of the ballot.
The relevant legislative will be registered in the Parliament today, said the Chairman of the Parliament, Archil Talakvadze.
Under the proposed initiative, the cases of voter coercion, intimidation and secrecy of the ballot will result in a fine or open arrest for a term of six months to two years, or imprisonment for a term of up to three years.
“Our goal is to hold democratic parliamentary elections to the highest democratic standard. We respect and trust the free choice of our community. We believe in our supporters and we believe the Georgian Dream will win in fair elections,” stressed Archil Talakvadze.
