Criminal charges have been filed against six people involved in a violent incident between representatives of the Georgian Dream and United National Movement parties last month.
Charges of hooliganism, and hooliganism with a weapon, have been filed without making any arrests, the interior ministry confirmed on Thursday.
Vladimer Gegeshidze, a Greco-Roman wrestler who competed in the 2012 London Olympics, was captured on TV camera during the incident wielding a stick, according to Civil.ge.
The six people involved have been questioned as witnesses to the incident, which took place at a polling station in the village of Kortskheli near Zugdidi, the report says.
The charges could carry prison sentences of several years, or a fine or a period community service.
Legislators from the UNM party are currently boycotting the national parliament over the incident, accusing Georgian Dream general secretary Kakha Kaladze of being behind the violence.
