CEC Confirms Ruling Party’s Landslide Victory
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 23 May.'08 / 12:23

The Central Election Commission (CEC) said on May 23 that official results, showing ruling National Movement Party winning polls with 59.48% in the proportional party-list contest, will not change.

CEC spokesman, Zurab Kachkachishvili, has also confirmed that the ruling party secured 71 MP seats out of 75 available in the majoritarian contest in single-mandate constituencies.

These results in the majoritarian contest, combined with the ruling party’s landslide victory in the proportional, party-list contest, means that the National Movement may have at least 120 seats in the new parliament, which is more than enough to form the constitutional majority.

Two-third of seats in the 150-member parliament is needed for the constitutional majority.

Kachkachishvili said that announcement of early official results was made possible “in a record short period of time.”

He also said that total of 15 polling stations have been annulled by Friday morning, May 23. Several other polling station may also be annulled, the CEC chairperson said; he, however, stressed that it would not “have any influence” on final election results.
