Georgia’s ex-president and UNM leader Mikheil Saakashvili published a video address, saying he thought UNM majoritarian candidates should not participate in a runoff.
Saakashvili said he did not believe a second round would change anything. "I don’t see the point in participating in a second vote,” Agenda.ge cited Saakashvili as saying.
"Of course it’s up to individual candidates to make a decision whether or not to participate in a second round and practically legitimize the elections held with very serious violations,” he noted.
UNM majoritarian candidates refused to participate in a runoff, the candidate with the next highest result will be involved in the forthcoming race.
