UNM Names Nominees for Legislative Positions
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 16 Nov.'16 / 12:27

The opposition United National Movement (UNM) party has re-nominated Davit Bakradze, who was number one on the UNM’s party list, as leader of the parliamentary minority group.

Sergi Kapanadze, former deputy foreign minister, who was elected through the UNM’s party list in the October 8 parliamentary elections, will become the Parliament’s vice speaker.

The UNM faction will be chaired by Nika Melia, UNM’s chief of campaign and mayoral candidate in 2014 local elections in Tbilisi.

The UNM party, which will take 27 seats in the new Parliament, has decided to form the minority group, but it has yet to decide whether the party will set up more than one faction.

The ruling Georgian Dream – Democratic Georgia party, which will have a 115 seat supermajority in the new Parliament, has not made final decision on the number of factions.

The third party, Alliance of Patriots, will take six seats in the new Parliament and set up one faction.

It is unknown so far when President Margvelashvili will set the date of an inaugural session of the newly elected Parliament, which should be convened no later than November 19.

“The exact date will be known only after CEC releases final vote tally and the President issues a relevant legal act,” the President’s office said on November 16.

The Central Election Commission plans to approve final vote tally for the October 8 parliamentary elections at its session on November 16.
