Georgia’s Minister of Justice has stated that Georgian citizens will be able to take Identification Cards (ID) free of charge from May 26 to June 26.

Minister Thea Tsulukiani has stated the step served to ensure higher a voter turnout for this year's parliamentary elections.

The Minister stressed the current Government of Georgia has taken a range of steps to ensure perfect election lists.

In this context, the Minister mentioned the Government’s efforts for the 2014 elections and said the election lists for the upcoming October parliamentary race would be of the ‘most high quality’ compared to all previous election lists.

Georgia’s Ministry of Justice started issuing ID cards in 2011, under the previous state leadership. Any Georgian citizen who wishes to take the card should visit any Public Registry office or the Public Service Hall.

The usual cost of a card is 30 GEL.
