Observer group alleges 'significant election violations'

From PMMG, which has observers in Kvemo Kartli, Samstkhe-Javakheti, Shida Kartli and Kakheti:

"Contrary to the previous bulletin we are receiving reports of far more significant election violations, often including the election commission members in the PECs, including agitation, ignoring complaints, lack of log books, ballot stuffing, names not matching badges, absence of proper stamps and seals on ballot materials, chaotic and uncontrolled entrance of voters, lack of marking appropriately with UV dye, as well as list irregularities. In addition we are increasingly receiving reports of voters voting on behalf of other people, or twice, underage voting and the ever present ‘Carousel Voting’. This, along with obstruction and violence against observers suggests wide ranging violations in these regions. This adds to previously reported administrative problems, of not enough ballot papers matching numbers of voters."
