SUKHUM, July 26. /TASS/. Abkhazia’s Prime Minister Artur Mikvabiya has tendered resignation, spokesman for the Abkhazian government Beslan Gurdzhua told TASS on Tuesday.

All the measures the government has been taking could have been more efficient in other environment," Apsnypress news agency quoted him as saying.

Abkhazian president accepts PM’s resignation
Abkhazian President Raul Khadzhimba has accepted resignation of Prime Minister Artur Mikvabiya, chief of the presidential press service Alkhas Gaguliya said.
"The president has accepted resignation of Prime Minister Artur Mikvabiya. A corresponding decree has already been signed," he said.
Abkhazia’s parliament planned to consider no-confidence vote to the government on July 27. The move was initiated by Almas Dzhapua over, as he put it, "failed passportization."
