Final Report on the Use of Administrative Resources for Election Campaign, June 14
TI Georgia observed the period of preparation for the 2010 local self-government elections from 15 March (prior to the election date being set) and until tallying the election results. We focused on four main types of administrative resources: legal (regulatory), financial, institutional (material and technical and human resources) and coercive resources. The monitoring was conducted by TI Georgia's Tbilisi office staff, regional coordinators (a coordinator in each region and in Ajaria) and through close cooperation with journalists. The following sources of information were used: media coverage (national and regional television channels, press and websites), political parties, their regional representatives and activists, journalists and concerned citizens. Information was also collected via a free hotline.
