The right of funding a party shall originate from the day following the day when the first session of the newly-elected Parliament of Georgia is held, and from the day following the day when all summary protocols of the final results of general elections of the representative bodies of the municipalities – the Sakrebulos (local assemblies) are announced. The amount of funding for a party shall be determined by a decree of the Chairperson of the Central Election Commission of Georgia on the basis of this Law, a summary protocol of the final results of the Georgian Parliamentary elections, the information on establishing a parliamentary faction by a party and the results of general elections of the representative bodies of the municipalities – the Sakrebulos.

11. The information on establishing/dissolving a parliamentary faction under paragraph 1 of this article shall be communicated to the Central Election Commission of Georgia in writing immediately after the occurrence of such fact.

2. The funds allocated for a direct transfer to a party shall be received by a party which is registered with the Georgian Central Election Commission and which has participated in elections independently or as part of an electoral bloc, provided that the party or the relevant electoral bloc has obtained 3%, or more than 3%, of the votes in recent parliamentary or local self-government elections (the given number of votes is calculated based on the number of votes cast in the elections held under a proportional system in the entire territory of Georgia).

3. The amount of the budgetary funding allocated under this article shall be composed of the basic funding, and bonuses for each Member of Parliament elected under a proportional electoral system, and a component corresponding to the number of votes received by a party.

4. The budget funding to be received by a party shall be calculated in accordance with the following formula:

Z=B+(M*600*12)+(L*100*12)+(V*1,5)+(W*1)+(H),

Where Z means the amount of budgetary funding to be received by a party; B - the amount of basic funding; M - the number of Members of Parliament equal to 30 or up to 30 elected under a proportional system; L - the number of Members of Parliament above 30 elected under a proportional system; V - the number of votes received from up to 200,000 voters; W - the number of the votes received from more than 200,000 voters; H - a party that has been registered with the Georgian Central Election Commission for the purpose of participating in the recent parliamentary elections and whose members have been elected to the Parliament of Georgia, provided that the given party creates a parliamentary faction. For the purposes of the given formula H=GEL 300,000.

5. The minimum amount of the annual basic funding shall be GEL 300,000.

6. If a party or an electoral bloc participating in elections independently has received 6% or more of the votes cast in the recent parliamentary or local self-government elections, its basic funding shall be doubled.

7. For the purposes of the formula under this article, M and L shall be equal to zero if the term of office of Members of Parliament elected under the proportional system has been terminated in accordance with the legislation of Georgia. M and L shall also change by a respective amount (decrease or increase) if, within three months after the recognition of powers, the Members of Parliament elected under the proportional electoral system have left the party or joined a party that receives a budgetary funding under the procedure established by this Law. A party with the right to receive a budgetary funding, which a Member of Parliament elected under the proportional electoral system will leave and/or join within the period determined under this paragraph, shall immediately notify the Central Election Commission of Georgia in writing. The change in the budgetary funding to be received by the party under this paragraph shall be registered and become effective from the day following the expiry of the three-month period under this paragraph.

71. A party receiving funding under this article shall receive a bonus of 30% of the basic funding if, in the election list presented by this party or by the relevant electoral bloc (in the case of local self-government elections, in all party lists) at the elections based on the results of which they received funding, at least 30% of female candidates are included in the first, second and every subsequent 10 candidates.

8. For the purposes of the formula specified in this article, the results of the recent parliamentary or local self-government general elections shall be used at the discretion of the party and under the conditions set out in this article.

9. If for the purposes of this article the results of an electoral bloc in the respective elections are used, the number of the received votes shall be divided by the number of parties in the given electoral bloc.

10. The basic funding shall be equally distributed among the parties in the electoral bloc.

11. A party shall receive budgetary funding only on the basis of prior written consent, which shall be submitted to the State Audit Office annually, not later than 25 November. If a party fails to submit, within the specified time limit written consent to receive budgetary funding for the following year, the State Audit Office shall notify the party in writing about this fact on the second day after the expiration of this time limit. The party shall have the right to submit the relevant consent within 3 days after receiving written notice from the State Audit Office. If a party fails again to submit the relevant consent within the period established by the State Audit Office, it shall forfeit the right to receive the budgetary funding for the following year and shall be notified in writing about this by the State Audit Office. The State Audit Service shall transfer the above funding back to the state budget within 5 days after the party forfeits the right to funding.

12. In order to provide financial support to the election campaigns of political parties during the year of general parliamentary and local self-government elections, additional funding shall be allocated from the state budget of Georgia to cover TV advertising costs. This funding may be used for TV advertising only, from the date when the respective general elections are called up to election day, and in the case of a repeat vote, a second round of elections or re-run elections, before the day of the respective voting. The funding under this paragraph shall be received only by parties that have become eligible for funding according to the results of the recent general elections. The amount of funding allocated to a party under this paragraph shall be calculated by multiplying the number of votes obtained by the relevant electoral subject in the recent general elections by three and dividing it by the number of political parties within the electoral subject. In addition, the amount of funding allocated to a party and electoral bloc (despite the number of parties in the bloc) participating independently in the elections may not exceed GEL 600,000. At least 15% of the funding allocated to an electoral subject shall be used for pre-election advertising with at least 7 broadcasters, which do not represent national broadcasters.
