No referendum on early parliamentary elections in Georgia
The Georgian Central Electoral Commission has decided to reject an initiative to hold a referendum on early parliamentary elections, the press office of the Commission announced.
"According to the decision of the commission, registration of the initiative group (Nana Kakabadze, Tatiana Honiashvili, Avtandil Rehviashvili, Gela Nikolaishvili and Gia Tabliashvili) and its proposed referendum question:" Do you want to hold early parliamentary elections in 2014? Yes or no", have been refused.
As previously reported, a group of human rights activists took the initiative to hold a referendum on early parliamentary elections due to "unequal distribution of power in the parliament of Georgia."
