by | Aug 1, 2012

TBILISI, DFWatch – Georgia will hold parliamentary elections on October 1, 2012.

Manana Manjgalade, spokesperson for President Mikheil Saakashvili, said this at a briefing on Wednesday.

She said the president is sure that the October elections will be yet another proof of Georgia’s mature democracy and viability.

President Saakashvili calls for each citizen to actively participate in this important process.

October 1 is a Monday, which means it will be a public holiday in Georgia.

The newly amended election legislation will now require all cable networks to within three days carry government-critical channels Maestro, Kavkazia and Channel 9. The provision will only last for 60 days before and expires the day before the election.
