At today's briefing Kakha Kukava, the Conservatives' Secretary General, states that in Tbilisi and regions, especially South Georgia, the ruling party used about 150 000 false polling papers and IDs and in this way rigged the municipal elections.
On June 3rd the Conservatives asked from CEC polling lists from polling stations of 15 constituencies. Opposition had information that on May 30th 150 000 couldn't vote as weren't at the due places. On June 6th CEC Secretary Gizo Mchedlidze refused and explained that these lists were not public information. Opposition saw it as violation of the Electoral Code, saying that CEC must give documentation within 2 days.
The Conservatives turn to the court and CEC, and also ask to publish lists from these 15 constituencies. They can't rule out after inspection they will raise issue of giving them documents from other constituencies.
Opposition believes use of false polling papers and IDs weren't an exception to the rules and in case of objective election the ruling party would win less than 50 per cent of votes, and the national Council - up to 15-20 per cent.
They also promise to publish new information on rigging municipal elections in the nearest days.
