    TBILISI, JANUARY 5, 2004, RIA NOVOSTI - Legislation currently in effect in the Caucasus republic of Georgia does not quite meet the regulatory standards of the Commonwealth of Independent States nor those of the world community, argues Konstantin Markelov, a CIS expert.

    Speaking at a news conference in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi Monday, the CIS Interparliamentary Assembly mission head pointed out that Georgia's effective election law falls short of both the international standards for democratic polls and the CIS Convention on Electoral Rights and Freedoms.

    One can see the Georgian leadership and the Central Election Commission take consistent efforts toward creating a fair electoral system in that country, but the enabling legislation is still flawed, Markelov remarked. He will present related conclusions and recommendations on how to bring Georgia's election laws in line with the CIS standards as the Interparliamentary Assembly gathers for its session in April.
