The GDDG party told Civil.ge that Davit Gabaidze, number two on the party list, will be named as the new chairman of Adjara’s legislative body.
Before becoming a member of the Supreme Council of Adjara, Gabaidze was the head of Legal and Human Resource Management Department in Adjara’s government.
The Supreme Election Commission summarized on November 17 final results of the first and second rounds of the October elections, according to which GDDG has won the majority and will have 14 lawmakers in the 21-member Supreme Council. The National Movement will have five lawmakers, and Alliance of Patriots and Nino Burjanadze’s Democratic Movement will have one lawmaker each.
