Yesterday Georgian citizens voted to elect the 150-seat Parliament of Georgia, 77 members through party lists and 73 in the majoritarian districts.

As for the majoritarian results, CEC chairperson Tamar Zhvania said votes were still being counted. 

Although Georgian Dream candidates were leading at the most of the districts, Zhvania said "so far it seems like it’s possible that the second round will be needed at a pretty large number of districts”.
