This time the meeting was disrupted due to the lack of a quorum – only 21 out of 45 deputies attended the Sakrebulo

TBILISI, 12 Jan – Sputnik. The fifth attempt to elect the chairman of the Sakrebulo (advisory body) of the Zugdidi region (Western Georgia) was again unsuccessful.

The reason for the disruption of the meeting was the lack of a quorum – only 21 appeared in the advisory body, where there are 45 deputies. And to elect the head of the advisory body, the support of at least 23 deputies is required.

Two out of 20 deputies from the ruling Georgian Dream party did not attend the meeting. Also, none of the 22 deputies from the opposition United National Movement party came.

“It makes no sense to come here on an excursion. First of all, it is necessary to take into account the interests of Zugdidi and the residents of Zugdidi. By its decision, the Gakharia party must prove that it is indeed oppositional,” said UNM member Khatuna Shamugia.

The party of ex-Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia showed the third result in the local elections according to the proportional system, yielding to the “Georgian Dream” and “United National Movement”. Now the votes of the deputies from the Gakharia party in the Sakrebulo are decisive in those cities and regions where the difference between the deputy composition of “Dream” and the UNM is minimal.

Initially, the meeting, which was supposed to begin at 12:00 local time, was postponed for an hour. According to the oldest member of the Sakrebulo Konstantin Uberi, the regulations provide for the postponement of the meeting for such a time in order to give the deputies additional time to come.

Despite this, it was still not possible to collect the required number of deputies to start the session. Accordingly, the meeting was postponed for a month.

“There was no quorum, and, based on this, we had to postpone the meeting. It was postponed for one month, and if the faction wishes, it has the right to schedule a meeting earlier. Based on this, I do not see any problem,” the deputy said from “Georgian Dream” Irakli Bobokhia.

Attempt # 3: Sakrebulo Zugdidi and Tsalenjikha were again left without a chairman

As a result of elections to local self-government bodies in the Zugdidi region, 22 mandates went to the opposition United National Movement party, and 20 mandates from the Georgian Dream. Three more mandates are held by the party of ex-Prime Minister of Georgia Giorgi Gakharia – “For Georgia”.
