This was reported today by Secretary General of the Conservative Party of Georgia Kakha Kukava. He says that the elections will be sponsored by the parties taking part in them.
A work group for preliminary elections (Primary) rules and principles development set up by the Conservatives' initiative has already completed its work and approved the regulation on preliminary elections.
The new rules imply the establishment of electoral administration for Primary. Voting procedures, vote counting rules and dispute resolution rules are already in place.
The public discussion of the Primary project suggested by the opposition is going to be continued until December 1. After that, leaders of the parties participating in the elections will sign the approved version.
The Primary rules were developed by five oppositional parties: the Conservatives, the People's party, movement For United Georgia, movement For Fair Georgia and The Industrials, as well as by international and non-governmental organizations, such as the USA Republican Institute (IRI), International Society for Fair Elections and Democracy (ISFED), International Foundation for Election Systems (IFES).
The Conservatives also published Internet-Primary data showing that Zviad Dzidziguri (leader of the Conservative Party) is the front runner among the candidates for the post of Mayor of Tbilisi with his 27 percent of votes; he is followed by Irakliy Alasania (Alliance for Georgia) with 26 percent. The third place (15 percent) belongs to leader of the People's Party Koba Davitashvili.
So long as none of the candidates has got more than 50 percent of votes in the first round, the Internet poll implies a second round, where Zviad Dzidziguri is going to get 52 percent of votes and Irakliy Alasania will get 48 percent.
