Ninety-eight MPs spoke out in support of the new prime minister. The fact that the opposition did not participate in the meeting did not affect the process of government approval.
Gakharia became the fifth prime minister from the ruling Georgian Dream party over the past seven years.
He replaced Mamuka Bakhtadze, who led the government for one year and two months.
Giorgi Gakharia’s candidacy for the post of prime minister was officially presented on September 3 following a meeting of the political council of the Georgian Dream party, leader of the union Bidzina Ivanishvili.
