Georgian PM candidate formally presents gov’t composition to Parliament


Irakli Kobakhidze, the candidate for the position of the Prime Minister of Georgia, on Friday presented his Government composition to the Parliament bureau.

The only change in the cabinet concerns the position of the Minister of Defence, where Juansher Burchuladze would be replaced by Irakli Chikovani, an MP from the ruling Georgian Dream party.

A session of the Congress of the ruling Georgian Dream party on Thursday elected Irakli Garibashvili, the country’s Prime Minister who announced his resignation on Monday, as the party’s new Chair, while nominating incumbent GD Char Kobakhidze as his replacement.
