By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:

Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili has ruled out the possibility of holding early elections in the country before the 2016 parliamentary elections.

Talking about the reshuffle in the country's government, he stressed that seven ministers have left their positions.

"Only two of them will stay in the Cabinet of Ministers and head other ministries," Garibashvili said.

Georgian Dream coalition came to power as a result of the parliamentary elections held in October 2012 in Georgia and the United National Movement that was a ruling party after the 'Rose Revolution', went into opposition.

The presidential election held a year later resulted in the victory of Georgian Dream candidate, Giorgi Margvelashvili.

Georgia held municipal elections in two rounds in summer of 2014, which resulted in the victory of the ruling Georgian Dream coalition throughout the country.
