According to a TV9 report on May 24, 2012, the acting head of the Ozurgeti municipality (Guria region), Ilia Vashakmadze, has ordered his staff to sign up friends and relatives as supporters of the ruling United National Movement party.

Due to the fact that such an action was in clear violation of existing legislation, Transparency International Georgia demanded the government of Georgia to take appropriate measures.

Nevertheless there has been no reaction from the government in this regard. Therefore, we request the Inter-institutional Commission of Georgian National Security Council to demand from the government of Georgia an implementation of necessary measures in reasonable time and to provide information in this regard.
