Kakha Kaladze: They are trying to bring some uncertainty and destruction with dirty methods - we will provide information to the diplomatic corps in this regard

No one will be permitted to destabilize the nation, - Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze said today to reporters, in response to claims from the governing party that several CEC-registered NGOs were linked to opposition political groups.

They are attempting, as Kaladze indicated, to introduce dirty tactics and destabilize the voting process.

The CEC has registered 62 observer organizations, 15 of which are associated with the opposition, according to the ruling party. At today's briefing, Givi Mikanadze claimed that "12 out of 15 groups are associated with the National Movement" and "three with European Georgia."
