"From today, the CEC of Georgia begins registration of observers. While it is very difficult to say exactly how many organizations will be registered in the Commission. We take into account the experience of the previous elections. During the election of local self-government in 2010, there were registered about 12 thousand of local and more than a thousand of foreign observers. We think that the order of these numbers will be similar", the CEC Chairman Zurab Kharatishvili said.
Georgian organizations should submit their applications till August 5, and foreign organizations - till September 21.
