Tbilisi, Georgia, April 23
By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:
The Georgian CEC canceled the registration of former Defense Minister Irakli Okurashvili as a candidate for mayor of Gori city on April 22.
Two parties, namely, the People's Party and the movement "For Fair Georgia" filed a complaint against the former minister.
The leaders of these parties - Mamuka Giorgadze and Sergo Javakhadze protest against Okruashvili's registration. They added that the former defense minister has not lived in Georgia recently.
The complaint was granted as Okruashvili obtained asylum in France. He has recently lived there. He returned to Georgia after the regime was changed in 2013.
