CEC splits as Saakashvili win confirmed

The CEC chief said they had early results in from 3400 precincts, altogether enough to put Saakashvili about 3 points over 50.

In the middle of the briefing, the opposition representatives on the CEC burst into the room, shouting at the CEC chair and denouncing the results as lies.

Looking now into whether this is ironclad by law, and whether reported violations (the ballot stuffing in Telavi, lost ballots in a car crash, the apparent mess OSCE saw in Samtskhe-Javakheti) could lead to annulments, and whether those could in turn affect the end result.

Georgian TV is helpfully airing a live Christmas service.
