“I want to say with full responsibility that the rumors on my resignation are being purposefully spread. First, I could not understand why I had to go to Milan, I came from Milan and returned to the country in 2012. I have finished my career in sports, and today I am in politics,” Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze said on Imedi TV’s ‘Capital’ program.
“I think that my country needs the work I am doing more, and I say with full responsibility that, together with my teammates, we are working 24/7 to solve all the problems that concern Tbilisi and the people living in Tbilisi,” Kaladze noted.
“The rumors are incorrect: I’m not going anywhere, I’m going to stay in politics for a long time, as long as I have the support of society, the support of the population. I never run from the middle of a job; I always like to finish what I start.
“One of the components of my success formula is that when you achieve some success, by no means should you be satisfied with it: you should always look for more. The same applies to my city, Tbilisi. I have done many good things, many good projects, but it is certainly not enough. No matter how well we did it, there are more problems in the capital that need to be solved, and I will do my best with my teammates to make tomorrow’s Tbilisi better.
“Regarding the mayoral elections and my participation, it is too early to talk about it. There are seven months to go before the elections, everything has its time and place,” he said.
