TBILISI, 13 Jan – Sputnik. The administration of the President of Georgia has published a list of candidates who have applied for the post of head of the Central Election Commission of Georgia.

At the end of December, Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili announced a new selection for the post of chairman of the Central Election Commission and two of its members. A new competition was needed, since the powers of the current chairman of the CEC and two members of the CEC expire on February 2.

According to the data on the administration’s website, four candidates are running for the post of CEC chairman: the current head of the CEC Giorgi Kalandarishvili, the chairman of the district commission Vake Tamaz Poladashvili, lecturer at the State Technical University and constitutionalist Tengiz Tevzadze and founder of the Energy Association Giorgi Shaishmelashvili.

In addition, the administration has published a list of seven people wishing to fill the vacant positions in the CEC of Georgia.

According to the legislation, the President of Georgia will have to select two candidates for each seat and present them to parliament.

The Parliament of Georgia last year approved amendments to the regulations, according to which the procedure for electing the CEC chairman is changed.

According to the amendments, if a candidate for CEC chairperson is unable to enlist the support of 2/3 of the deputies, a second vote will take place, in which a simple majority of the parliamentary list will be sufficient.

The decision to change the procedure for electing the head of the CEC, according to the initiators, was dictated by the difficulties that the deputies faced when electing Giorgi Kalandarishvili to this post.

Due to disagreements between the opposition and the authorities over the candidates for the CEC post in August 2021, Kalandarishvili was able to take the post of CEC chairman for only six months, having received the support of only the ruling party.
