Ten of them have already been registered as candidates and CEC has several more days to decide on registration on four others.

Among those who have already been registered as candidates are: GD ruling coalition’s Davit Narmania, ex-minister of infrastructure; Dimitri Lortkipanidze, named by a coalition of CDM and Nino Burjanadze’s DMUG party; Kakha Kukava, named by an election bloc of New Rights and Free Georgia parties; MP Giorgi Gachechiladze, who is the leader of the Green Party and who quit the GD parliamentary majority in February; actress Asmat Tkabladze, named by the Labor Party.

UNM’s Nika Melia has yet to be registered as a candidate by the CEC, like three others: Irma Inashvili, who runs media outlet Obieqtivi, was nominated by Alliance of Patriots of Georgia; set designer Teimuraz Murvanidze, nominated by ex-foreign minister Salome Zourabichvili’s party Georgia’s Way; and Sergo Javakhidze, nominated by Self-Governance for the People election bloc of two small parties, who received 0.13% of votes in the 2013 presidential election.
