2012-08-23 12:58

Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (OSCE ODIHR) has officially launched the monitoring mission for parliamentary elections scheduled in Georgia on October 1, the RIA Novosti reported.


The head of the OSCE ODIHR is a Bulgarian diplomat Nicholas Vulchanov who led a similar mission during Georgia's parliamentary election in 1999 and presidential election in 2000.

Fifteen mission experts are already in Georgia. Next week they will be joined by a group of long-term observers consisting of 28 people, who will work throughout the country. 3-4 days before the elections, the mission will be joined by 350 short-term observers to monitor the election on the day of the election and counting process.

Vulchanov stated that in addition to the ODIHR representatives, the representatives of the OSCE, Council of Europe, NATO Parliamentary Assembly and the European Parliament would also work at the election within the international observation mission.

Recall, this Monday, the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly delegation, led by its president Riccardo Migliori, began a four-day visit to Georgia in connection with the parliamentary election to be held on the 1st of October.

The OSCE delegation intends to meet with the Chairman of the Commission for verification of the voter lists Mamuka Katsitadze, the head of the International Foundation for Electoral Systems Nermin Nisich, as well as the representatives of the non-governmental organizations, "Transparency International", "Georgian Young Lawyers Association", "International Society for Fair Elections and Democracy" and "Open Society - Georgia".
