As reported by the Interfax, official Tbilisi has stated the elections in Abkhazia are illegitimate and wouldn't be recognized by the international community.
"The international community and international organizations consider Abkhazia occupied territory, so any elections there will be illegitimate", Vice Speaker of Georgian Parliament Paata Davitaia said at a press briefing on Saturday, the Interfax reported. According to him, more than 300 thousand local Georgians have been expelled from Abkhazia; therefore, "we cannot talk about some legitimate election there".
"I call on international organizations and our partners to respond adequately. I urge the residents of Abkhazia to to come to consciousness and realize that their only chance to save themselves and their identity - it is to live together with Georgia", Davitaia added, according to the Rosbalt.
Recall, the elections to the National Assembly - the parliament of Abkhazia - were held on March 10. The parliament of Abkhazia consists of 35 deputies. 148 candidates nominated by pro-government party "United Abkhazia," opposition party "People's Unity Forum of Abkhazia", as well as by the Communist Party and the Party of Economic Development of Abkhazia were competing for these 35 seats.
