New resignations in Georgian government

Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili has issued a decree about the resignation of several officials ahead of next month’s Parliamentary Elections, as their continuation in official duties was a conflict of interest following their naming on the ruling party’s election list.

According to today’s decree those required to step down were the Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs Archil Talakvadze, the Energy Minister Kakha Kaladze, the Minister of Agriculture Otar Danelia, and the Deputy Minister of Corrections Tamar Khulordava.

All these people were named on the party or majoritarian list of the current ruling Georgian Dream-Democratic Georgia party. 

Kaladze and Danelia announced their resignation on September 10, and this was officially approved by Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili today, reports.
