Georgian court rescinds results of parliamentary elections in one constituency

A Georgian court has rescinded the results of the parliamentary elections in the Bolnissky district. As a Rosbalt correspondent reports, this was announced by Nino Burdjanadze, speaker of the Georgian parliament and leader of the opposition party Burdjanadze-Democrats.

The Bolnissky district is considered one of the most disputed areas: many Azerbaijanis live here who traditionally prefer to vote for the government and not the opposition. A fight broke out on the eve of the elections when local people tried to stop the pre-election campaign of radical opposition leader Mikhail Saakashvili.

Until this decision was taken the ruling party For a New Georgia under Eduard Shevardnadze had the most votes in the Bolnissky district. However, according to Ms Burdjanadze, this is just a small part of the oppositionists' demands to the government. 'This is not enough. I hope they won't think that we will stop here,' Ms Burdjanadze said.
