During the July 2014 local self-government elections the population of Georgia elected 2083 members of 71 municipalities. The interest of both political parties and independent candidates was high in the local self-government elections. According to the CEC estimates, total of 10,7001candidates were running for office in the 2014 local self-government elections.  In addition to political considerations, the interest in the elections was fueled by the incentive of employment. In light of particularly intense problem of unemployment in rural areas, local self-government institutes provide one of the best opportunities for employment.

ISFED believes that the second round of local self-government elections set an important precedent in the electoral history of Georgia. The necessity of the second round in these elections proved that a competitive electoral environment is forming in Georgia, which means that no party, including the ruling one, is guaranteed a victory in the first round. We think that the aforementioned set a higher standard for conducting democratic elections in the country.
