Georgia: Online local election mapping

Transparency International Georgia, the International Society for Fair Elections and Democracy, the Georgian Young Lawyers Association, the National Democratic Institute and the Caucasus Resource Research Center have set up an online mapping system for monitoring today's local election in the former Soviet republic. The vote is considered particularly important as a test to assess the level of democratization in the country and especially regarding the election of a Mayor in the capital, Tbilisi. The site is at http://elections.transparency.ge.

  • Incidentally, there’s what’s meant to be a collaboration between journalists and bloggers through the Georgian branch of the Institute for War & Peace Reporting (IWPR) on the elections too (in Georgian) at http://geoelection.ge/

    All going well this should represent the first real use of online media and tools to monitor and report on an election in the South Caucasus, hopefully setting a precedent for Armenia and Azerbaijan.
