According to Kakhaber Kemoklidze, the former head of the government administration, polls conducted by the International Republican Institute’s (IRI) Center for Insights in Survey Research show that a large part of the Georgian population trusts the former Prime Minister of Georgia, Giorgi Gakharia.
Kemoklidze echoed the IRI survey that reads that 65 per cent of surveyed respondents named Giorgi Gakharia as an acceptable political figure.
“IRI’s research has shown two important things. First, a large part of the Georgian population in the Georgian political landscape trusts Giorgi Gakharia, and he is the highest-ranking figure in the Georgian political establishment. He has always been a different, modern type of leader. He had the right views, values, bureaucracy-based management. Second, studies have shown that Georgian society is simply tired of the current radicalization and polarization. This society is interested in the Georgian political establishment speaking out and, most importantly, showing action in solving specific cases, specific socio-economic problems,” Kakhaber Kemoklidze said.
According to a study by the International Republican Institute (IRI), Patriarch Giorgi Gakharia and Kakha Kaladze are leading in the personal ranking among politicians and public figures. In particular, 65 per cent of Georgians named Giorgi Gakharia and 54 per cent Kakha Kaladze.
