It is problematic to see tens of observers at a polling station who do not know how to observe elections and who openly support a particular political party – Arnold Stepanyan, a human rights activist and Head of Multinational Georgia civil movement said.
The Head of Multinational Georgia attended a meeting held at the Central Election Commission (CEC) in connection with by-elections to take place on May 19 in Georgia.
Representatives of Multinational Georgia will monitor the elections in Marneuli town on May 19. Stepanyan said that no major incident had taken place in Marneuli town for the time being that would put the process under suspicion but tension was still anticipated tomorrow.
As for election processes in Zugdidi, Stepanyan said that lack of the political culture was intimidating and much depended on the non-governmental sector in holding of elections in a normal environment.
