Ruling party: Elections are free and fair

Davit Bakradze, top of the ruling National Movement's party list, said the "elections are free and fair and we [the National Movement] are ready to accept any results."

He accused the opposition of preparing for protests, not polling.

“Opposition representatives leave their stations and leave for Tbilisi. It shows that they are not interested in the results of the elections... Members of the opposition parties have left five stations in Lagodekhi and seem to prepare for the demonstration in Tbilisi."

He said the election process is generally calm, and promised that all violations would face an "adequate reaction from the CEC."

The polls close in 30 minutes.
