Kutaisi Sakrebulo Sacks City Mayor
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 12 Apr.'13 / 18:02

City council, Sakrebulo, in Georgia’s second largest city of Kutaisi, voted mayor Besik Bregadze out of office on April 12.

The move did not come as a surprise after President Saakashvili’s UNM party lost the majority in Kutaisi’s Sakrebulo earlier this month when some of its members quit UNM faction in the city council, which is now controlled by members affiliated to Georgian Dream coalition. UNM now has four members in Kutaisi Sakrebulo.

Besik Bregadze was elected on mayor’s post by Sakrebulo on October 8, 2012, when UNM was still in the majority of the local city council.

Kutaisi Sakrebulo has yet to select Bregadze’s replacement on the mayor’s post.

Unlike Tbilisi, where mayor is directly elected, mayors of four other “self-governing cities” – Kutaisi; Batumi; Rustavi and Poti, are elected by their respective Sakrebulos.
