Prior to the second round of the elections, opposition parties called on their supporters to boycott the elections and not to cast their votes in the runoffs, as they believe that the elections were rigged by the incumbent government. 

Leaders of the opposition parties say that today's elections are formal, as only Georgian Dream candidates are taking part in it.
