  • Irma Inashvili, who runs media outlet Obieqtivi, was nominated by Alliance of Patriots of Georgia;
  • Teimuraz Murvanidze, a set designer nominated by ex-foreign minister Salome Zourabichvili’s party Georgia’s Way;
  • Sergo Javakhidze, nominated by Self-Governance for the People, an election bloc of two small parties, who received 0.13% of votes in the 2013 presidential election;
