პლატფორმა „არა-ფობიას!“ ეხმაურება იუსტიციის სახლთან მიმდინარე მოვლენებს და მოუწოდებს სამართალდამცავ ორგანოებს, დაუყოვნებლივ მიიღონ სათანადო ზომები ადმინისტრაციული დაწესებულების შესასვლელის ბლოკირების საწინააღმდეგოდ, რაც ხელს უშლის მის ფუნქციონირებასა და იუსტიციის სახლის სერვისებით სარგებლობას.

Based on the analysis of the information received through the PVT, ISFED concludes that the voting process at most of the polling stations throughout Georgia was conducted generally in accordance with the procedures prescribed by the law. However, during the voting process, violations of voters’ secrecy of vote remained as the most problematic. Outside of polling stations mobilization of coordinators and supporters of Georgian Dream and of Salome Zourabichvili were at massive scale. They were tracking the voters who came to the precincts, which is the continuation of an infamous malpractice of attempted influence on voters’ will. Cases of violations of secrecy of vote on Election Day and practice of tracking the voters once again highlight the problems related to the environment of intimidation and harassment during the pre-election period and its negative effect on the electoral process.

According to ISFED observers, the disturbing trend of mobilization of Georgian Dream party activists and so called coordinators outside of polling stations with the purpose of tracking the voters still continues. In isolated cases, PECs members were themselves tracking the voters who came or did not come to the polling stations. This is the continuation of a negative trend established in Georgia and it represents an attempt to control the free will of voters.
