Georgia will hold parliamentary elections on October 31, 2020. The National Democratic Institute issued a report assessing the pre-election environment and has a team of eight international election experts who, paired with assistants based in Georgia, are tracking the work of the electoral administration, campaign environment, gender and inclusion, media and disinformation, and the impact of covid-19. They are virtually interviewing key stakeholders, including representatives of the Georgian government, political parties and candidates, the election administration, media, civil society, and domestic and international observer organizations. This is NDI’s second bulletin resulting from that long term analysis; the first covered the election administration and campaign environment. The Institute will monitor the overall election process until its conclusion and will issue a comprehensive assessment shortly after the elections. NDI appreciates the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and National Endowment for Democracy (NED), which make possible the Institute’s ongoing election analysis.
