Besarion Bendeliani, opposition For Georgia party mayor candidate in Tsageri claims his car has been shot at last night.

I went out and saw that my car was damaged, [it was] shot at. There was no sound [although] it is a very densely populated place", Bendeliani said.

He connects the assault with his political activities.

I have a very good support [in Tsageri]. This causes disappointment in the [ruling] Georgian Dream [party], which has lost its face. The State Security Service is especially active", the opposition candidate says.

For Georgia member Natia Mezvrishvili said at a special briefing that the party is practically deprived of the opportunity to carry out an election campaign.
