Former Head of NGO Becomes President's Parliamentary Secretary

Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili has appointed Ana Natsvlishvili, former Head of the Non-Governmental Organization Georgian Young lawyers Association (GYLA), as his Parliamentary Secretary.

The post became vacant after Margvelashvili appointed his former secretary Ana Dolidze as the member of the High Council of Justice on January 8.

Margvelashvili said he was glad Natsvlishvili accepted his offer and decided to be his secretary.

“We will continue to actively cooperate with the Parliament of Georgia, and I hope that this cooperation will be oriented to create a better legal and political reality in Georgia,” the President stated while presenting Natsvlishvili.

Natsvlishvili expressed hope that her relationship with parliament will be based on mutual respect and dialogue.

“I hope that our cooperation with the legislative body, as well as with all state agencies involved in the legislative process, will be based on the principle of respect, and will be constructive and fruitful," she added.

Ana Natsvilishvili served as the GYLA head from 2014-2017.
