Georgia gets new prime minister

Georgia got a new prime minister Monday — Irakli Garibashvili, who previously held the post from 2013 to 2015.

The parliament in Tbilisi confirmed the appointment and gave its backing to Garibashvili’s Cabinet.

Last week, Giorgi Gakharia announced his resignation as PM — a post he had held since 2019 — because of a disagreement with his own team over the detention of Nika Melia, a prominent opposition politician.

Garibashvili was defense minister in Gakharia’s Cabinet and is a member of the ruling Georgian Dream party.
