Georgia is holding the second round of parliamentary elections Saturday at 17 single-mandate constituencies.
The country held parliamentary elections on October 31, but a run-off was required at 17 of the 30 constituencies.
Under the mixed electoral system, voters elected 120 MPs by proportional representation and 30 lawmakers—by majoritarian representation.
But the Georgian opposition does not recognize the results of the October 31 elections, and they hold respective protests in the capital Tbilisi and some other major cities. The opposition parties that won parliamentary seats have stated that they renounce these seats and will not run in the second-round elections.
However, the law does not envision a procedure for a candidate refusing to run in the second round. Accordingly, the names of all the candidates who passed to the second round will be on the ballots.
