RESTRICTION OF THE RIGHT OF OBSERVERS
2021-10-30 At the polling station #7 of the electoral district #70 (Poti), the queue manager was checking the voters beyond 20 meters from the polling station, making it difficult to observe the process. Observer submitted a relevant complaint, which was met with dissatisfaction by the commission members. Following the complaint, district election commission members, Natia Chikvaidze and Maia Tabukashvili showed up at the polling station. They expressed aggression towards ISFED’s observer, noting that the observer did not have the right to take photos or videos. Notably, these district election commission members had expelled Transparency International Georgia’s observer earlier.
