TBILISI, October 27 (Itar-Tass) - Candidate for presidency nominated by the All-People’s Assembly of Georgia, former parliament speaker Nino Burdjanadze said Sunday she hopes the presidential election underway in the country “will be marked by a quiet, fair and democratic atmosphere.”
She said it to reporters after casting her ballot at polling station No. 2 in Tbilisi.
“It’s really important for the voters to be active, to come and vote in favor of Georgia’s development, in favor of a building a fair country,” said Burdjanadze who is broadly viewed as one of the main contenders for the post along with Georgy Margvelashvili nominated by the Georgian Dream coalition, and David Bakradze running for the Georgian National Movement, a former ruling party.
“Although some infractions have already been registered, still I hope the election will be quiet, fair and democratic on the whole,” she said.
The presidential election is proceeding in a quiet atmosphere and without any serious violations and incidents, the Central Election Commission secretary Eka Azarashvili said several hours ago.
“Small procedural or technical flaws have been registered but the officials made up for them promptly,” she said.
