Georgia, Tbilisi, Oct. 11 /Trend N.Kirtskhalia/
The Georgian Dream coalition is planning to examine the situation at Georgian railways and a staff reshuffle is likely to take place. According Bidzina Ivanishvili,s advisor Giya Khukhashvili, the question of railway leaders replacement has to be raised.
"The rail network is a strategic area of geopolitical importance. The company is experiencing a number of infrastructure problems and priorities are being distributed in the wrong way," he noted.
Khukhashvili said the project which connected Tbilisi airport and railway station through the rail network cost $17 billion, but income amounted to 6000 lari ($1=1.66 lari). This is why the incoming government has questions regarding the bypass rail project at Tbilisi.
Parliamentary elections with the participation of 14 parties and two political blocks took place in Georgia on October 1. They were held under a mixed list-majority system.
According to complete preliminary CEC data, the Georgian Dream coalition will have 83 deputy mandates and the United National Movement- 67.
