CEC denies most alleged voting violations

Opposition campaigners, including highly marginal candidate Irina Sarishvili, are accusing the ruling party of staging "merry-go-round" voting -- taking their supporters to multiple polling stations to vote repeatedly.

The ruling party is denying the charges, and the Central Election Commission say they could not confirm most of the opposition's claims today. According to the CEC, there have been only minor problems.

The CEC has confirmed the ballot stuffing in Telavi, problems with the marking ink used to prevent multiple voting, and heated arguments at polling stations in at least two Tbilisi precincts.
