Government official calls for calm

An Interior Ministry spokeswoman appealed to the opposition to remain calm in a televised address.

The spokeswoman said that an incident earlier in the day when a voter was shot dead outside a polling station was a personal matter that should not be used by the opposition for political leverage.

She also said that two have been arrested after a scuffle broke out between National Movement and United Opposition activists in Kutaisi and that a member of the Equality Institute, a pro-opposition NGO, has been arrested in Khasuri after he was found with dozens of ballots.
