USA commented elections in Georgia

2010-06-02 09:20

The U.S. embassy to Georgia shares the tentative assessment of the international monitors, commenting upon the municipal elections in Georgia and motes the evident progress of May 30th elections in comparison to the previous ones.


Yesterday the embassy issued a statement in this regard.

"Georgia's conduct of these elections marked evident progress over past polls and represents clear improvements toward international standards. Embassy teams observed technical improvements in the administration of the elections on election day, although we also observed irregularities in individual precincts in Kakheti, Kvemo Kartli, Samtskhe-Javakheti and Samegrelo," it says.

The embassy also reminded information spread during the pre-polling campaign: messages about abuse of administrative resource, biased coverage by mass media, intimidating of opposition candidates, flaws in lists.

Yet CEC was praised for its efforts. "We recognize the Central Election Commission's efforts to improve transparency and responsiveness to electoral concerns. We highlight the commitment of the government's interagency task force to engage political parties and civil society on elections-related issues," the document.

‘We look forward to continuing to work with the Georgian authorities, political parties and civil society to address these challenges and shortcomings," the statement concludes.
