Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze said he does not trust pre-election monitoring interim reports published by the International Society for Fair Elections and Democracy (ISFED).
Kaladze sees ISFED’s image damaged following the scandal over the flawed election data. Responding to a question on the ISFED interim report that concerned ‘alleged political threats and alleged use of administrative resources’, Kaladze said the NGO must present relevant evidence.
“ISFED should provide facts. It is an organization with a bad image and mounted scandal over the election-related flawed data,” Kaladze claimed.
International Society for Fair Elections and Democracy (ISFED) published the second interim report of official pre-election monitoring on September 23. It covers the period from August 31 to September 21, 2021, as well as a few separate events taking place within the reporting period.
