Rul­ing party wins Ge­or­gia vote, op­po­si­tion al­leges fraud

The Myanmar Times - - World -

The rul­ing Ge­or­gian Dream party won Ge­or­gia’s par­lia­men­tary polls, early re­sults showed yes­ter­day, but ac­cu­sa­tions of vote rig­ging from the op­po­si­tion sparked fears of po­lit­i­cal in­sta­bil­ity in the Cau­ca­sus na­tion. Ge­or­gia’s Western al­lies are watch­ing closely to see if the strate­gic na­tion can ce­ment gains after its first trans­fer of power at the bal­lot box four years ago. With votes from more than 67 per­cent of precincts counted, the elec­tion com­mis­sion said Ge­or­gian Dream was lead­ing main op­po­si­tion force the United Na­tional Move­ment (UNM) by 49.76pc to 26.69pc.
