Georgia, Tbilisi, May 24 / Trend, N.Kirtskhalia /
Georgia's new agriculture minister will be Acting Minister of Agriculture Shalva Pipia. As Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili said in an interview to the Georgian media outlets, the decision has been taken to nominate Pilia's candidacy for Georgian agriculture minister.
Nomination date of the new minister expires on May 24. After resignation of the agriculture minister David Kirvalidze in connection with corruption scandal in the Ministry, Pipia fulfilled duties of the minister.
"I think that I have made a good decision. The person, who fulfills duties of the minister, will be appointed as the minister," Ivanishvili said.
He said that if the investigation toward David Kirvalidze "will be completed well", then he will return to his post. "Thus, it is a temporary decision, taken before completion of the investigation on the case. And later Pipia will write an application and will give up the seat for Kirvalidze," Ivanishvili said.
