Georgia Targamadze, the Christian Democrats leader, [minority] mentioned that after passing the constitutional amendments on partial shift of the Parliament to Kutaisi, the city will de-jure and de-facto become the second capital of Georgia.
"Most of us present in the hall and the leaders of Georgia express special honour to Kutaisi residents, and surely we all share this honour. Why Tbilisi can have a mayor elected by direct elections, and , in de jure, and as we can say, de facto second capital of Georgia there can be no directly elected mayor?" The party's initiative implies direct elections in Batumi, Kutaisi, Rustavi, Poti.
Targamadze added that in case over 30 000 signatures for the shift of parliament to Kutaisi will be collected, his party will start mass company on collecting signatures to back their initiative.
