Change of the place for the presidential palace - the issue may be the main point of the presidential campaign

President"s residence from Avlabir may be moved to Atoneli street. The President of Georgia Giorgi Margvelashvili responded to the initiative of the parliamentary majority.

According to Margvelashvili, the topic of Avlabari residence remains the principle issue for the upcoming elections and by the attitude to this issue the future president will say many things.

The Minister of Justice Tea Tsulukiani considers that the future president will move from Avlabari to Atoneli.

Opposition criticizes the initiative of the change of the palace. Representatives of the opposition party link this issue to the personal confrontation.

Giorgi Margvelashvili, in 2013, when preparing for the presidency, claimed that the palace was too pompous.

Giorgi Margvelashvili decided to stay in Avlabari residence after the issue was politicized as former prime minister Bidzina Ivanishvili considers that the President of Georgia should not be in this residence.
