Opposition protest as CEC hears complaints

The Central Election Commission is meeting to consider complaints filed over yesterday's elections. Two opposition commissioners walked out in protest. "I will not take part in this farce," one said.

The complaints include too many voters at some precincts, instances of bribing; nearly all allegations levied by opposition representatives.

Our reporter described CEC chairman Levan Tarkhnishvili, who has been noticeably absent from media briefings this week, as "unfazed."

UPDATE: The meeting ended; the two boycotting commissioners were Gaga Mtvarelidze of Labor and Sandro Bregadze of Freedom/United Opposition.
