​Statement of Parliamentary Secretary of President Salome Zourabichvili

“I would like to make a statement, as the Parliamentary Secretary of President Salome Zourabichvili, regarding the nomination of the candidates for the Chairperson of the Central Election Commission of Georgia (CEC).
As you are aware, in a week after the approval of the election results, the President should nominate three candidates for the Chairperson of the CEC. Prior to the nomination, the President should hold consultations with non-governmental organizations.
We have held a run-off voting and due to the shortage of time, we had to work in a hectic situation. The CEC announced final results on the last Friday, therefore we have a deadline until tomorrow. Naturally enough, we will present three candidates for the CEC Chairperson tomorrow, according to the law, after the President meets non-governmental organizations in the afternoon,” Dimitri Gabunia, Parliamentary Secretary of the President of Georgia said.
