Two Georgian politicians have brawled during a television debate ahead of general elections next month.
The fistfight between parliamentary candidates Polad Khalikov and Vepkhia Gurgenishvili erupted live on Qvemo Kartli TV on September 21.
Khalikov, a candidate for the Industrial political bloc, called Gurgenishvili of the Democratic Movement "scum," prompting the latter to throw a pen, which led to the fight.
The studio producers interfered and pulled the two politicians apart.
Elections in Georgia are scheduled for October 8.
