"I assure all my supporters that by personal decision I am no longer an official employee of the CEC.
In life we have to make difficult but important decisions, and, of course, every step we take must correspond to our own values. Those of you who know me well know that I have always worked in local and international organizations, as well as in the public sector, guided only by the principles of professionalism, fairness and integrity, and I have always tried to contribute, even a little, to the development of our country.
I would like to thank each of my colleagues, partners, journalists, people with whom I have long business or friendly relations for the cooperation," Ana Mikeladze wrote.

After that the head of the Human Resources Management Department gave briefings as a speaker. The opposition believes that Mikeladze's decision is yet another proof of how the elections in the country were rigged.
