Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia on the Invitation of International Observers for the October 2012 Parliamentary Elections

Today, upon the instructions of the President of Georgia, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia has extended the official formal invitations to the international organizations, such as the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), OSCE Parliamentary Assembly (OSCE PA), Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), NATO Parliamentary Assembly (NATO PA), European Parliament and respective EU Institutions to send the election observers to Georgia for the upcoming October 2012 parliamentary elections.

Moreover, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has conveyed its request to the High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission, Baroness Catherine Ashton to ensure the EU funding for the media monitoring project analogous to the one that was successfully implemented during the 2010 local self-government and municipal elections in Georgia.

The official invitations dispatched to the international organizations underscore the full readiness of the Georgian side to receive as many election observers as possible, and as soon as possible - at the time of their earliest convenience - enabling them to thoroughly monitor the processes in both the pre-election and elections stages.

It should be noted that the extension of official invitations to the international observers almost seven months prior to the elections is an unprecedented move in the international election monitoring practice.
