Tbilisi, Georgia, Feb.17
By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:
Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili proposed the country's parliament to approve Nino Gvenetadze as the head of the Supreme Court.
He nominated the candidacy for this post from among 28 people presented by various parties, social movements and non-governmental organizations.
"We had 28 deserving candidates and it was difficult for us to choose the most deserving candidate among them," said Georgian president. "But guided by the earlier determined concepts, we made a clear choice in favor of Nino Gvenetadze, the professor, specialist, professional and honored lawyer."
Gvenetadze was removed from refereeing during the office of Mikheil Saakashvili. The authorities accused her of corruption, however, the opposition stated that she was fighting the pressure on the court.
Previously, Gvenetadze was a member of the Republican Party, however, after the coalition, which included the republicans won in the parliamentary election, she suspended her membership in it.
The term of office of the Supreme Court head in Georgia is 10 years.
The term of office of the current Supreme Court head Konstantin Kublashvili will end on Feb.23.
