Georgia - Political parties

Major political parties that won representation in the legislature elected in 1999, based on their share of the party list voting, include Shevardnadze's Georgian Citizens' Union (gaining 891,000 of 2.1 million party list votes cast), Ajarian leader Abashidze's pro-government Revival Union (537,000 votes), and Industry Will Save Georgia (151,000 votes). The Georgian Labor Party just failed to gain enough votes to win party list seats (141,000 votes). Other parties that gained more than one percent of the party list vote include the opposition National Democratic Party (NDP; it won the second largest number of such seats in 1995), the People's Party, and the United Communist Party. Most of the minor political parties and groups characterize themselves as opposed to the government.
