The official website of the Central Election Commission of Georgia is malfunctioning, and therefore the results of the second round of parliamentary elections have to be published in an alternative form. This is reported in statement departments, distributed on Sunday 22 November.
According to the post, a technical or software glitch occurred while loading the results. The reasons for what happened are being investigated. The department did not rule out that there could have been “outside penetration.”
“It should be noted that the summary protocols continue to be posted on the website, all the protocols are publicly available and available to all interested parties,” the CEC said in a statement.
Earlier, the CEC reported that the ruling party of Georgia is winning in all 17 constituencies of the country in the second round of parliamentary elections. According to the published data, each candidate from the Georgian Dream won over 87% of the votes in the second round of voting.
The first round of parliamentary elections in Georgia was held on October 31, 2020. According to the CEC, after counting all the votes, the ruling Georgian Dream party won 48.22% of the vote.
However, on November 1, the opposition protested. They refused to recognize the election results, accusing the CEC of falsifying the voting results.
