The Election Code does not provide a possibility for independent candidates to run for parliamentary seats and for Tbilisi Sakrebulo. This challenges the principle expressed in paragraph 7.5 of the 1990 OSCE Copenhagen Document, and is at odds with the provisions of the Constitution of Georgia (article 50.1). It is recommended that the Election Code reinstates the possibility for independent candidates to run in both types of elections.
