Leaders of Georgia's opposition forces signed a memorandum, in which they claim the parliamentary election results null and void, demanding to repeat the election. Interfax news agency reported that on Wednesday evening.
"The entire opposition specter believes that the recent election does not reflect the will of people, and the new Parliament cannot be legitimate. Parties that broke the threshold refuse to assume their authorities. All opposition parties of Georgia demand appointment of new parliamentary elections", said David Bakradze, the leader of the European Georgia party.
According to the Central Election Committee of Georgia, the ruling party, Georgian Dream gained 48 percent of votes, and eight opposition parties got 52 percent in total. The regulations foresee that from 150 MPs in the Georgian Parliament, 120 are elected via party lists, and 30 via single-constituency districts.
The opposition stated that the election was completely rigged in favor of the Georgian Dream. According to them, if it wasn't, the real outcome of the election would be totally different.
