Opposition in Georgia demonstrates against election results

Thousands of opposition supporters demonstrated in Tbilisi on Sunday (8 November) to protest agaist the results of parliamentary elections held on 31 October.

Opposition leaders had earlier described the elections as illegitimate and said that they will boycott the new parliament. All eight opposition parties who won seats in the new parliament have agreed to the boycott.

The government has dismissed the claims and said it will go ahead with convening the new parliament once the official results are announced later this month.

Some opposition leaders have said that new elections should be held under a different election administration.
