"Candidate should have economic experience" - ruling team to nominate PM"s candidacy in the afternoon

"Georgian Dream" is preparing for an extended meeting, which will be attended by Bidzina Ivanishvili. At this meeting the candidate for the Prime Minister will be named. It is reported that Mamuka Bakhtadze and Giorgi Gakharia will be considered for the post.

"Mr. Bakhtadze`s candidacy is seriously considered for this post, but I still have to listen to the vision that he has to solve problems and to accelerate the economic growth that is vital for us," said Mamuka Zoidze, member of the ruling party.

The final decision will be made regarding the candidate after consultations in the "Georgian Dream". The Speaker of Parliament also refrains from nominating a particular person. He says only that the new Prime Minister should have experience in economic direction.
