On October 26, 2024, the process of parliamentary elections of Georgia will be held through the application of electronic technologies. Therefore, a stable supply of electricity to polling stations will be especially important. Today Grigol Mamiseishvili, Chairman of the Board of Directors of JSC "ENERGO-PRO Georgia", met with Giorgi Kalandarishvili, Chairman of the CEC, for the second time regarding the mentioned topic. "JSC ENERGO-PRO Georgia has been preparing for the upcoming elections for several months. In connection with this, the first meeting of the representatives of the company and CEC was held in May 2023. JSC "ENERGO-PRO Georgia" closely cooperates with the Commission. The company will provide a stable supply of electricity to polling stations as much as possible. However, in case of damage to the energy network caused by bad weather or other reasons, the company's technical teams will be ready for an immediate response," - said Grigol Mamiseishvili. According to him, it is important that in the buildings where the polling stations will be located, the internal network should be in order, isolated and the persons responsible for the electrical wiring should be present on the spot.
At the meeting, it was agreed that CEC will provide the company with the exact addresses of the polling stations and all other necessary data and information that will contribute to the smooth power supply of the polling stations, while the company, within its competence, will try its best to make the election process go smoothly in terms of power supply.
"Of course, it has always been important for us to finish the election process without delay, as we can see, the network company started preparations 18 months before the elections, which confirms the importance of the issue for us, especially when for the first time, elections in all stations will be held through the application of electronic technologies. In general, an emergency disconnection in the network is never excluded, however, the volume and frequency of accidents in the ENERGO-PRO Georgia network is a matter of separate discussion, and we are ready to talk about it more openly, because here the company's responsibility is minimal. Despite many problems, we are confident that we will successfully overcome this challenge, and in addition apart from our great responsibility, it will be a clear answer to various insinuations." - said Mikheil Botsvadze, Chairman of the Board of Directors of JSC ENERGO-PRO Georgia Holding.
