Prime Minister of Georgia, Bidzina Ivanishvili told France Press in an interview that he will leave his post until November 24.
“I do not see any logic in governing the country from behind the scenes. I do not intend to work from there. A week after the inauguration I will resign and will leave the post until November 24,” the Georgian Prime Minister said.
In case of any presidential candidate’s victory in the first round of presidential elections, the inauguration will take place on November 17.
Some 23 candidates are participating in the presidential election to be held on October 27.
Ivanishvili said nothing about his successor, claiming that he has already decided on a candidate. He does not intend to name the candidate yet.
