The minority criticizes the government and believes that the latter is not capable to solve the problems connected with the financial crisis. The opposition state they will not participate in the voting on Friday.

The ex-Deputy Minister of Finance, Kakha Baindurashvili, was named the Minister of Finance. The two new Ministers will appear: the Minister of Regional Development and Infrastructure (candidate - Davit Tkeshelashvili, the ex-State Minister for Regional Governance), and the Minister for Penitentiary and Probation (candidate - Dimitri Shashkin, the ex-representative of a non-governmental organization).
