On 8th of May, 2008, Public Movement "Multinational Georgia" addressed
political parties and blocs participating in the Parliamentary elections
scheduled to take place on 21st of May with the request of sharing
information concerning violations recorded in the pre-election period,
as well as on election day. PMMG considers it important that information
is shared and verificated in a timely and effective manner, that will be
reflected in the final report prepared by PMMG and distributed among
international organizations. 

We would like to remind you that "Multinational Georgia" conducts
pre-election monitoring and is going to observe the forthcoming
parliamentary elections in the regions in which minorities are compact
settled (regions of Samtskhe-Javakheti, Kvemo Kartli, Kakheti and Shida
Kartli), where 80% of PCs will be covered. It should also be noted that
PMMG will have more than 300 observers in abovementioned places, among
whom 100 persons will be from Tbilisi.
