BAN STICKING POSTERS OF GEORGIAN DREAM IN KOBULETI
2012-08-03 On August 3, 2012, activists of the coalition Georgian Dream – Anzor Inaishvili, Zviad Tsivadze and Vazha Tsetskhaldze – were putting up posters on outdoor lighting posts in Daba Chakvi, informing about an assembly to be held on August 5, when they were approached by a representative of Chakvi administrative unit and forbade them from putting up the posters. Activists stopped working.
The ISFED’s LTO contacted Achiko Dumbadze, head of Kobuleti Municipality Supervising Service, who confirmed the incident and said that within no later than 10 days after scheduling elections, the municipality was going to designate places where all interested parties would be able to put up election posters.
Chakvi Administrative Unit’s representative acted illegally under Article 80 of the Election Code – interference with spread of electoral slogans and materials, punishable by fine ranging from GEL 1000 to 2000.
