The Prime Minister of Georgia, Irakli Garibashvili stated, that the mandatory military service has been reviewed, and a reform will take place, with all persons to undergo mandatory military service only in the Ministry of Defense.
He explained that before this system was scattered and inefficient.
“We had a conversation with the ministries included in the security service and we agreed that the mandatory military service will be completely transferred to the system of the Ministry of Defense. An effective system will be created- a program lasting six, eight, and 11 months. It will be intensive military training. The main goal will be to create a strong reserve,” said the Prime Minister.
As Garibashvili noted, the project will cost more than 80 million GEL.
He pointed out that the recruitment will be carried out by the Ministry of Defense instead of the regional ministry. This process will start in January, but the program will be implemented from January 1, 2025.
