Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 1 Aug.'13 / 21:58

President Saakashvili said on August 1 that the UNM has “a very good” presidential candidate, Davit Bakradze, who “needs a very serious support.”

“We should now rally like never before around our common candidate, because this is an issue on which Georgia’s progress will largely depend. We have a very good candidate and he needs a very serious support,” Saakashvili said.

He made the remarks while speaking at a meeting with senior lawmakers from his UNM party and provincial governors; Tbilisi mayor Gigi Ugulava was also present.

Davit Bakradze became UNM’s presidential candidate after internal party elections.

Saakashvili said that holding of “the first-ever democratic primaries in the history of Georgia’s political parties” contributed to “increase of our political culture.”
