Representative of Christian Democratic movement, Gocha Jojua, after the meeting said the President named the candidates late, by violating law, and in his view, it was done to lead the situation in the dead-end and leave opposition no choice.
According to the recently amended Electoral Code of Georgia, CEC chairman will be elected by the Parliament, and the issue must be decided upon before January 21st.
MPs need to choose between Levan Tarkhnishvili [the acting head of CEC], Zurab Kharatishvili and Otar Sichinava.
Opposition states all the three are in fact representatives and satellites of the ruling party, and the government selected them to rig results of local elections and ensure own victory beforehand.
