Saakashvili was accused of interference in domestic affairs of Ukraine2010-01-19 16:00
According to the statement of the pro-opposition of Democratic Movement-United Georgia movement council, by sending over 2000 monitors to presidential elections in Ukraine, the government of Georgia rudely interfered in the domestic affairs of the country and impaired Georgia's image - RIA Novosti. The party believes that sending the aforesaid monitors "caused tension in electoral process."gt-en-newsitem-inside
In the view of party leader, ex-Speaker Burjanadze, these actions of the government show what, in this government's view, are "democratic elections."
"We are sure that the freedom-loving Ukrainian people in fraternal Ukraine will ensure the victory of democracy without Saakashvili's interference!" statement says.
The first tour of presidential elections in Ukraine took place on January 17th. Before the elections 400 Georgian "monitors" arrived in Donetsk.
The President of Georgia commented the incident and said that monitors were sent on the request of Ukrainian people, and "their arrival was hailed with heart and soul". According to Saakashvili, "their stay there was on my order agreed with all political forces, we received confirmation and agreement from all. Surely, before the second tour we'll ask them again whether they want to involve our monitors. It's up to them to decide."
Georgian Central Electoral Commision intended to accredit over 2000 monitors. On January 17th the Ukrainian CEC re-considered registration of Georgian monitors and again rejected. CEC members decided to turn to Prosecutor General's Office.
Yesterday Levan Tarkhnishvili, the ex-head of Central Electoral Commission of Georgia, said most Georgian monitors departed for Georgia.
He said this decision must ease "tension", accompanying Georgian monitors in Ukraine; moreover most of them were not allowed to work.
