Natelashvili, Gachechiladze: 'I won'

Only Gia Maisashvili (at 0.67% of the vote so far) concedes defeat, but accuses Saakashvili of rigging the election.

Gachechiladze claims he wons; Shalva Natelashvili says he should face Saakashvili in a second round.

Davit Gamkrelidze of the New Rights says he will not join the opposition coalition's rallies, but congratulated their candidate, Gachechiladze, on advancing to a second round against Saakashvili.

Thanks to a commenter for catching an earlier inaccuracy; Gamkrelidze's statement was initially misinterpreted.

From what I understand Gamkrelidze has bowed out...according to Civil.ge:
"Davit Gamkrelidze, a presidential candidate and leader of New Rights Party, has conceded victory to his rivals and said Mikheil Saakashvili should now face run off against Levan Gachechiladze."

“'I want to state that the result of the yesterday’s election is that there should be second round of polls,' MP Gamkrelidze said at a news conference on January 6. 'I want to congratulate Mr. Levan Gachechiladze with success in the first round.'”

But regardless all this claiming victory or defeat is unfounded..there aren't any offical votes yet!
