Georgia Election

The recent election in Georgia seems to satisfy all but the opposition parties and Russia. Mikheil Saakashvili was re-elected on January 5 in an election which was monitored by several hundred international observers who say it was a significant step for democracy, even though there are some problems which need to be corrected. The opposition parties, however, are saying the election results were falsified.

Here are some articles to check out:
