From April 1, 2008 the Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association has been implementing monitoring of the pre-election campaign in Tbilisi, Rustavi, Telavi, Gori, Dusheti, Kutaisi, Ozurgeti and Batumi.
Following instances of violations of pre-election campaign have been revealed as a result of the monitoring:
Participation of public servants in pre-election agitation.
Instances of voters’ material attraction from representatives of election subjects (In particular, there were cases when Georgian citizens received and were promised to receive gifts and other material values)
The Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association applies to the Central Election Commission with regard to the issue and by considering the Election Code requires to make up the report of administrative offences on the actions of the public servants (state envoys – governors), who took part in pre-election agitation with violation of legislative requirements.
The Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association appeals the Central Election Commission abstain from registering representatives of the election subjects who violated pre-election agitation procedures (material attraction of the citizens).
GYLA will continue pre-election monitoring, observe election day and post-election day procedures.
