The Georgian Interior Ministry promises that the upcoming by-elections will be held in a free, democratic and safe environment.
Moreover, Interior Minister Giorgi Gakharia and Chairperson of the Central Election Commission Tamar Zhvania signed a Memorandum of Understanding aiming to ensure that by-elections are held in a peaceful manner.
Municipal elections were last held in Georgia in October 2017, while parliamentary elections were held in October 2016.
The parliamentary by-elections will be held because former MP Salome Zurabishvili was elected the fifth president of Georgia and her seat in parliament is now vacant.
