According to the draft amendments to the Electoral Code, observers at a polling station who are monitoring the election, if desired, have the right to count only the valid and invalid ballots. Earlier legislation did not restrict the amount of the ballots to recount.
In addition, the amendments stipulate the conditions for the monitoring of election by international observers. In particular, organizations the statute of which provides monitoring of elections, human rights protection and which recognize the internationally accepted principles, may engage in the monitoring of election, the edition reported.
Earlier it was reported that Georgian MPs have already adopted amendments to the Electoral Code. According to the new amendments, the international observers have got the right to monitor the parliamentary election in Georgia in the fall this year not only at the polling stations, but also in the district committees and the Central Election Commission, the Vestnik Kavkaza reported.
The bill was adopted in the second hearing. It also determines requirements for the observers that make up the code of the observer - impartiality, objectivity, etc. As a result, the code of conduct for observers is quite wide.
