Saakashvili was transferred to a military hospital after he collapsed and lost consciousness due to a prolonged hunger strike
Georgians flood streets of capital Tbilisi to seek release of jailed ex-president and opposition leader Mikheil Saakashvili who was arrested in early October upon his return from exile in Ukraine.
An exit poll by Ipsos Global pollster commissioned by the pro-opposition Mtavari TV has shown opposition parties won 61.4 percent of the votes, against 38.6 percent for the ruling party.
Saakashvili was convicted in absentia on the abuse of office charges in 2018 and sentenced to six years in prison. He denies any wrongdoing and says the case is politically motivated.
State, private and media websites were taken out by the attack on October 28, including those belonging to the Georgian president's office and two private television stations.
