Parliament once again fails to elect the Head of CEC

The Parliament of Georgia has failed to elect a new head of the Central Election Commission for a second time.

The candidacies of Giorgi Kalandarishvili and Giorgi Santuriani were submitted for the chair of the CEC by the President Salome Zurabishvili to legislature, but none of them received the required 100 votes to be elected to the position for a 5-year term.

Kalandarishvili received 83 votes in favor and 11 against, while Santuriani was supported by four votes and 11 were against.
