"Proceeding from the fact the Interior Ministry introduced the culture of fear, citizens, when asked who they will vote for at elections, don't express their opinion openly," Irakli Alasania thinks.
Gogi Topadze [Industrailists' party] said he didn't believe any surveys.
" I don't consider these surveys real, - he added. - At meetings with population we conduct a real survey, and according to this one the government's rating is very low." Previously Levan Gachechiladze, one of the Defend Georgia movement leader, called survey by CSA "acts of psychological terror" and pressure on society. In his view, companies, on whose data surveys are based, and on whose request they were held, are fully controlled by the government, in particular, President Mikheil Saakashvili and Interior Minister Vano Merabishvili.
Surveys were conducted in Tbilisi from May 1st to 14th, over 1000 respondents aged 18+ participated.
Out of them 68 per cent stated their intention to vote. The results on candidates:
Gigi Ugulava (ruling party, United National Movement) - 57%;
Irakli Alasania (Alliance for Georgia)-14%;

Gogi Topadze (Industrialists` Party) -10%;
Zviad Dzidziguri (National Council) -6%;
Nika Ivanishvili (People`s Democrats) 1%;
Davit Iakobidze (Tortladze-Democrats)-1%.
None of the respondents marked other candidates, Giorgi Laghidze and Tamar Vashadze.
