Paragraph 26

Article 1276 (participation and registration) prescribes the right to participate and register for Tbilisi Sakrebulo Election. This right (right to vote), as both an active and passive electoral right, has already been defined by Article 3 subparagraphs d, e, f, g and h. Also, Chapter V very extensively prescribes the way of registering election stakeholders and support lists. On the other hand, Article 120 also stipulates the registration of party lists, candidates for membership in the local self-government representative body - Sakrebulo, Candidates for Gamgebeli, Mayor. By redrafting the special provisions on the right to participate in and register for Tbilisi Sakrebulo Elections, the Election Code will be difficult to implement and understand by the election participants with different roles (candidates and voters, observers, electoral administration, etc.).
