New changes in Georgian government. At the extraordinary meeting on Friday evening Grigol Mgaloblishvili, Georgian PM, said that the situation in the country requires serious reforms in many sectors and spheres, that was why new resources must drawn to a number of ministries and agencies.


The first sphere to be reformed was called the Ministry of Defense. The PM thanked David Kezerashvili for work he did over the years in this position, especially for the period of combat actions, tough for the whole country. The candidate for this post, presented by Mgaloblishvili, was Batu Kutelia.

The second minister to leave was Ekaterina Tkeshelashvili, the Minister of Foreign Affairs. She was also praised for the work done, but Mgaloblishvili underlined the necessity of new force and experience in the sphere of foreign relations, and presented Grigol Vashadze as a candidate for this post. Vashadze had recently been the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, but then was appointed a Minister of Culture, Sports and Monument Protection. Now he is back to the Foreign Ministry - as its head.

One more replaced official was the Minister of Education, Giya Nodia. He was substituted with ex-Minister of Justice, ex-deputy General Prosecutor, Nikolai Gwarmia.

The post of the Minister of Culture was offered to Zurab Abashidze, the former Georgian ambassador in Russia. Mgaloblishvili pointed out that Abashidze asked for some time to think this offer over, but expressed hope that the candidate will not refuse.
