TBILISI, October 15 (Itar-Tass) —— The Georgian Central Election Commission has made public the preliminary results of the rerun parliamentary elections at 11 polling stations on October 14. The rerun parliamentary elections were held at a polling station in the Gori and the Singagi constituencies each and at nine polling stations in the Khashuri constituency. According to the preliminary results of the Central Election Commission, the candidates from the Georgian Dream coalition won at 11 polling stations.
The candidates from the former ruling party United National Movement were leading with a slight margin in the three foresaid constituencies without due account of these 11 polling stations according to the preliminary election results on October 1. But after the rerun parliamentary elections the situation has changed in these constituencies, because the candidates from the Georgian Dream coalition have gained most votes in these constituencies.
If according to the preliminary election results without due account of 11 polling stations (the results were made public on October 5), in the parliament Georgian Dream won 83 seats (39 seats from one-mandate constituencies and 44 seats on the party lists), the United National Movement – 67 seats (34 and 33 seats, respectively), after the rerun parliamentary elections the coalition has 86 deputy seats (42 seats from one-mandate constituencies and 44 seats on the party lists) and the United National Movement – 64 seats (31 and 33 seats, respectively).
The CEC is to make public the final election results not later than 19 days after the elections (before October 20). The final election results are expected to be made public on October 16-17. The first meeting of the parliament, which will approve a new government, will be held no later than on October 21, though this may take place earlier.
