TBILISI, November 2 (Itar-Tass) - Interior Minister Irakly Garibashvili is nominated as a candidate from the ruling party Georgian Dream for prime minister. The decision was taken unanimously by the political council of the coalition during its meeting on Saturday, approved by the parliamentary majority and announced by Georgian Premier Bidzina Ivanishvili.
Garibashvili is 31 years old. He graduated from Tbilisi State University, specialized in international relations, and later studied at Sorbonne University. From 2004 to 2012, he worked at the Cartu Group company run by Ivanishvili at the time. Garibashvili was also the head of the Cartu charity foundation from 2005 to 2012.
When Ivanishvili went in for politics, Garibashvili became his ally and one of the leaders of the party Georgian Dream-Democratic Georgia within the Georgian Dream coalition, which won the parliamentary elections on October 1, 2012.
