Chairman of the Parliament of Georgia Archil Talakvadze has resigned. He will continue his political activity as Vice-Speaker.
As Talakvadze stated at the briefing held after the majority sitting, his place is in the parliament hall.
Georgian Dream nominated Kakha Kuchava, who currently serves as Deputy Speaker, for the position.
Talakvadze noted that after reaching an agreement with the opposition, there was a need for a rotation in the parliamentary majority, which is why he “gave up the speaker seat and moved to the parliament hall.”
“Given that the negotiations in which I represented the Georgian Dream party have ended with an agreement, I consider that I should leave the position of speaker for the proper conduct of further processes in the parliament,” he pointed out.
