Georgia, Tbilisi, August 14 /Trend Kirtzkhalia/
An initiative group began collecting signatures in Georgia demanding registration of the leader of Georgia's Way Party, ex-foreign minister Salome Zourabichvili as a presidential candidate.
According to one of the initiators of the signature collection, Mamuka Baliashvili, the law does not prohibit Zourabichvili who has a dual citizenship (Georgia and France) to participate in the presidential election.
"In order to mislead the public it was stated that Salome Zourabichvili as a person with dual citizenship does not have the right to participate in the presidential election, but actually it is not true," Baliashvili said.
This is why, according to him, the initiative group has begun collecting additional signatures to show that Zourabichvili has a large-scale support.
