Georgia’s sixth presidential elections since gaining independence in 1991 was held on 27 October 2013. The elections decided who will succeed President Mikhel Saakashvili, who is constitutionally barred from seeking a third consecutive term.

Ambassador Kenneth Yalowitz, former U.S. Ambassador to Georgia (1998-2001), served as an election monitor under the auspices of the National Democratic Institute. He commented on his evaluation of the election based on his on-the-ground observations. He was joined by Laura Jewett, Regional Director, Eurasia Programs, National Democratic Institute.
