The new members are: Eka Tsamalashvili, Gia Chanturia, Nikoloz Vacheishvili, Gigi Kublashvili, Sevdia Ugrekhelidze, Nika Churadze, Maia Javakhishvili, Merab Janelidze, Alexandre Crevaux-Asatiani, Natalia Mchedlishvili, Beso Katamadze, Mamuka Kurashvili, Igor Narmania, Alika Kuprava, Levan Peradze, Bakur Mgeladze, Temur Tsamtsishvili, Nika Oboladze and Irakli Giorgobiani.
“For those who care about the defeat of the Russian oligarch, the European future of Georgia, the freedom of President [Mikheil] Saakashvili, and the fact that we can lead our country to peace, finally get the status of EU membership and not just the status of a candidate, those who share the ideals of the Rose Revolution, obviously, for those people, political council’s door is open.
Accordingly, I would like to introduce you to the people who, by the decision of the political council, will be added to the political council.
It will be formalized at the next congress. Here are the members of the political council who were enrolled in the previous political council and did not represent this political council, and from today these specific people will be members of the political council. Also, there are new people who are entering the political family of the UNM for the first time. Before the next congress, I am sure that the political council will expand even more”, - said Levan Khabeishvili.
