2010-01-22 10:16

Government of Georgia intends to send its monitors for the second tour of presidential elections in Ukraine on February 7th, the VZGLYAD reports citing to Rezonansi [Tbilisi newspaper].


"The more monitors there will be, the more trust to the elections," said MP Irakli Kavtaradze [United National Movement, the ruling party]. "We'll monitor especially attentively in the places violations are most possible," he said, but didn't mention the number of monitors to be sent.

Sources say the government will "send as many monitors as needed."

The first tour was held on January 17th.

Georgian Central Electoral Commission intended to accredit over 2000 monitors. Ukrainian CEC rejected. On January 17th the Ukrainian CEC re-considered registration of Georgian monitors and again rejected. They also decided to turn to Prosecutor General's Office. After that most Georgian monitors departed for Georgia.

"If the due address from Georgia will be written in accordance with legal standards... it will, surely, be considered by CEC alongside with all other addresses without any discrimination," CEC member Okhendovsky said.

He said that no address has from Georgian embassy been received by CEC. He highlighted that the last day to register foreign monitors was January 11th. The Party of Regions in the Ukrainian parliament demands on immediate investigation of the situation with 400 Georgian monitors, some of them said to be Interior Ministry of Georgia employees.
