Parliamentary opposition feels rather negative about the reshuffle of Georgian Cabinet. As Georgiy Targamadze, the leader of parliamentary minority said that the decisions can hardly be explained.gt-en-newsitem-inside
According to Targamadze, this reshuffle makes him think of a competition between the President and the Prime Minister: who can appoint the least fit candidates.
Nikolai Gvaramia, the ex-Minister of Justice and Deputy of General Prosecutor didn't fit for the position of the Minister of Education, and even least fitting was Nikolai Rurua for the Minister of Culture, Targamadze mentioned. He pointed out that there is no good to appoint the Minister of Culture that has been dealing with issues of defense and security for all his life.
At the same time, Targamadze approved the appointment of Lasha Zhvania (new Minister of Economy) and David Sikharulidze (new Minister of Defense).
Georgiy Tsagareishvili, the representative of the Strong Georgia, an opposition fraction, also criticized the appointment of Nikolai Rurua, the deputy chairman of committee of defense and security, to the position of the Minister of Culture.
He believes that frequent reshuffles of the Cabinet reflect the feeling of instability in the government.
