Investigation should be launched immediately on the fact of rigging the elections

17 December, 2018


On December 15, TV Company "Rustavi 2" broadcast a report which included video recordings of how some PEC members rigged the presidential elections in different ways. Election rigging is a criminal offense. Through video recordings, it is possible to identify people who are involved in this process. We call on the Chief Prosecutor's Office of Georgia to launch an investigation on alleged facts of rigging elections, also determine the authenticity of the recordings. At the same time, we appeal to the CEC and relevant DECs to take appropriate disciplinary measures against the members of the Precinct Election Commissions shown in the recordings.
