2010-05-31 14:31

International monitors from OSCE registered systematic violations at the elections of mau 30th in Georgia.


"The election administration organized these elections in a transparent, inclusive and professional manner, but systemic irregularities were observed on election day in some regions, including several cases of ballot box stuffing and procedural violations during the vote count," today's communiqué says.

"The authorities made efforts to pro-actively address problems, including improving the quality of the voter lists. Nevertheless, the low level of public confidence in the election process persisted. The observers said further efforts in resolutely tackling recurring misconduct are required in order to consolidate the progress achieved and enhance public trust before the next national elections," the document continues.

"These elections were marked by clear improvements and efforts by the authorities to address problems occurring during the process. It is now time to fix the remaining shortcomings and take effective steps to prevent electoral malpractices before the next elections at the national level," said Ambassador Audrey Glover, Head of the OSCE/ODIHR [OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights] long-term Election Observation Mission, the message on OSCE official site informs.

Previously the authorities of Georgia claimed international monitoring missions registered no significant violations at the elections.
