Top government officials comment on elections

Top government officials have commented on the elections.

Former foreign minister Davit Bakradze acknowledged that the ruling party has not officialy won yet, but added "we will be in future," pledging readiness to cooperate with all the parties that make it into parliament.

Ruling Party MP Gigi Tsereteli said "We don't have the right to betray people like those in Gali who voted under a rain of bullets."

Giorgi Baramidze, State Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration, said "in general the country was better prepared for elections than last year."

Meanwhile National Movement activists gathered to show support at the party headquarters said they were not surprised by the exit poll results.

"Not 60 percent, our party should have 100 percent," said Mari, 17.

"We're here to support the National Movement, we're here to support Misha," said Levan 19.

Well known Georgian actor Otar Koberidze said he was "waiting for even more," when the exit poll results were released. "These results were not a surprise for me," he added.
