GD Secures Three More Majoritarian MP Seats
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 15 Oct.'12 / 01:43

Results of repeat elections in eleven precincts of three single-mandate constituencies on Sunday show that the Georgian Dream coalition has won three more majoritarian MP seats in the new Parliament.

It means that the Georgian Dream won total of 41 majoritarian seats out of 73; rest of the 32 single-mandate constituencies have been won by the UNM candidates.

The Georgian Dream won 44 seats through party-list, proportional system and in overall Bidzina Ivanishvili-led coalition will have total of 85 seats in the Parliament – 15 short of two-third majority required for passing constitutional changes.

UNM will have 65 seats in the new Parliament.

Repeat majoritarian elections were held in nine precincts of the Khashuri single-mandate constituencies, where the Georgian Dream candidate’s victory was largely anticipated.

Repeat poll was also held in one precinct of Signagi single-mandate constituency where UNM’s candidate Levan Bezhashvili, ex-head of the state audit agency, lost the race to Georgian Dream’s Gela Gelashvili.

Repeat election was also held on Sunday in Gori’s one precinct where the Georgian Dream candidate, Malkhaz Vakhtangashvili, won the race against UNM’s Giorgi Tatishvili, ex-governor of Shida Kartli region.
