Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze Names New Deputy Mayor

Newly elected Tbilisi Mayor, Kakha Kaladze, announced the names of the new Vice and Deputy Mayors on Monday.

Kaladze will have five deputies overall: Irakli Khmaladze, Kaladze's former deputy at the Energy Ministry, was named as the Deputy Mayor of Tbilisi. Maya Bitadze, Former Deputy Minister of the Environment and Protection of Natural Resources, will also now be one of Kakha Kaladze’s deputies, as is Irakli Bendeliani, who previously worked in the energy sector. Giga Nikoleishvili, who held the position of Deputy Mayor in the period of David Narmania, is set to retain his post.

Kaladze is expected to name the candidate for the fifth post of Deputy Mayor in the near future, and as Georgian media sources report, it is likely that it will be Ilia Eloshvili, who held the post of the Minister of Energy. The new Mayor of Tbilisi will also be announcing heads of municipal services in the coming days.

From November 13, Kakha Kaladze officially took the mayoral post from Davit Narmania.
