Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili on Monday officially confirmed Irakli Garibashvili for the post of the South Caucasus nation’s prime minister.

TBILISI, November 18 (RIA Novosti) – Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili on Monday officially confirmed Irakli Garibashvili for the post of the South Caucasus nation’s prime minister.

Bidzina Ivanishvili, now acting Georgian prime minister, earlier nominated Garibashvili, the country’s interior minister and his long-time associate, to replace him when the billionaire politician steps down later this month.

Earlier on Monday, the Georgian Dream political coalition that has a majority in parliament submitted Garibashvili’s candidacy for premiership to Margvelashvili, who was sworn in Sunday.

Garibashvili will now submit a new Cabinet to parliament for approval.
