Saakashvili’s party threatened by fingerprints2011-02-14 21:42
Biometric passports in Georgia will prevent the party in power from carrying out the upcoming elections in the desired manner. This was openly admitted by member of the ruling party, Chairman of the Parliamentary Legal Committee Pavle Kublashvili. Last year, being pressed by international diplomatic corps, the United National Movement and its leader Mikheil Saakashvili agreed to set fair rules for the elections, collected proposals from eight oppositional parties and promised to think. Here come first results: the fear of losing falsified votes.
Georgian opposition's compromises with Mikheil Saakashvili resemble Pinocchio's attempts to come to an agreement with Alice the Fox and Basilio the Cat. The ruling United National Movement is thumbing its nose at the eight parties that have developed proposals on improving the electoral environment. After a meeting with the interparty work group on electoral environment improvement, Head of the Parliamentary Legal Committee Pavle Kublashvili declared that biometrical passports would create problems at the coming elections.
In general, the opposition purposefully suggested introducing such identity documents that are impossible to forge so as to create problems to forgers. Guilty conscience gives itself away, and Kublashvili seems to have let the cat out of the bag.
"The use of these ID cards on the day of elections will create more problems, so in this part, I cannot agree that these biometrical identity documents should be used on the day of elections. We will try to agree on alternative proposals", - he declared.
The best lawyer of the party in power managed to convince at least one of the oppositional representatives, leader of the Republicans David Usupashvili, of his rightness. After the meeting, the latter explained to the journalists that Kublashivli is afraid of purely technical complications. Biometrical passports will be issued in June, so the entire electorate may fail to get them by the parliamentary elections scheduled for 2012. According to Usupashvili, they decided that the nationals would devise and suggest their way of struggling with falsified votes.
The ruling party's creativity is beyond any doubt. Once it suggested marking the hands of those who have cast their vote with a special paint. What was the result? The "selected" voters were "painted" not with the marking ink but with colored water and went to other voting stations.
