You're reading: Georgia’s president, opposition both claim victory
Popular
on social media

The governing party was in
a heated race against an opposition coalition led by Bidzina
Ivanishvili, a billionaire businessman who has posed the most serious
challenge to the pro-Western president since he came to power almost
nine years ago.

No results have been released yet in Monday’s
vote. Two exit polls conducted by Edison Research and Gfk gave the edge
to the opposition, but they were done four hours before the voting
stations closed and registered only the vote based on party lists, which
is used to elect 77 of parliament’s 150 members.

The remaining 73
members are directly elected by majority vote in their constituencies,
where the president’s United National Movement is considered to have a
strong advantage.
