36 parties have submitted applications to the Central Election Commission (CEC) for registration to run in the May 30 local elections. 

Labor Party, National Forum and Nino Burjanadze’s Democratic Movement – United Georgia are not among them. These parties have said that they would not run in the local elections.

The deadline for submitting applications expired at 6pm on April 3.

Those parties, which have not run in the 2008 parliamentary elections, or have no representative in the Parliament will have to submit list of 30,000 signatures of supporters for registration before April 10; CEC has a deadline before April 13 to register or to refuse in registration.

Then the registered parties will have a deadline before April 17 to establish an election bloc and ran in the election on the joint ticket. For example, New Rights Party, Republican Party and Our Georgia-Free Democrats, which are united in the Alliance for Georgia will likely set up an election bloc. The same is expected in respect of National Council, which among others also includes ex-PM Zurab Nogaideli’s Movement for Fair Georgia, Conservative Party and Party of People. All of them have applied for registration to the CEC.
