The Georgian Central Election Commission (CEC) says that 97 complaints have been presented on voting procedures by 40 observers and 57 representatives of political parties in today’s municipal election run-offs. 

The CEC has urged eligible individuals to present their complaints related to violations to district election commissions and not to the CEC. 

Otherwise, the complaints will remain undiscussed,” CEC said. 

The CEC says that the majority of complaints concerned procedural violations. 

The body has responded to alleged double voting with the use of two ID cards, calling such reports ‘disinformation.’ 

The CEC said that the individual whose two ID cards went viral earlier today changed his surname several years ago and he was eligible to vote with only a single identification document.
