DAMAGING OF CAMPAIGN MATERIALS
Regional coordinator of Strategy Agmashenebeli, Badri Shelia told ISFED that someone threw a rock at the party office and damaged Giorgi Vashadze’s banner.
According to him, activists are systematically intimidated and threatened with suspending their social assistance. For example, mayoral representative of Shua Khorga, Malkhaz Makatsaria threatened a Strategy Agmashenebeli member Mzevinar Konjaria, with cancelling her social assistance because Giorgi Vashadze visited her home.
In an interview with ISFED observer, Mzevinar Konjaria confirmed the account. Her family is currently experiencing severe social problems. According to her, Giorgi Vashadze examined their living conditions. Following the visit, when she was in a store, the mayoral representative told her that if she voted for Giorgi Vashadze, they would cancel her social assistance.
ISFED observer also interviewed the mayoral representative, who was visiting the GD campaign office during working hours, together with campaign coordinators. He categorically denied issuing a threat and said the "women are inadequate” and that the self-governing unit was providing all types of assistance to the family, in line with the legislation.
