USA claim violations in Georgian elections

2009-02-26 15:29

According to the annual report on human rights, prepared by the Department of State and presented yesterday by Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State, the latest presidential elections in Georgia [won by Mikheil Saakashvili] were generally conducted according to the European standards - RosBalt.


"President Mikheil Saakashvili was reelected on January 5 in an election that international observers found consistent with most Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) democratic election commitments; however, they also highlighted significant problems, including widespread allegations of intimidation and pressure, flawed vote counting and tabulation processes, and shortcomings in the complaints and appeals process," the Department of State report states.

"These and other problems continued into the parliamentary elections on May 21, which international observers concluded were uneven and incomplete in their adherence to international standards. Civilian authorities generally maintained effective control of the security forces," the same document adds.
