Legal Issues Committee of the Georgian Parliament backed the Supreme Court judicial candidates by the majority of the vote on Wednesday. Gennady Makaridze, Tamar Okropiridze, Nino Sanodze and Tea Dzimistarashvili will serve a lifetime if approved.
Opposition MP Levan Ioseliani voted against all four candidates, while MP Fridon Injia voted no on Nino Sanodze. Now the candidates will be approved at the plenary sitting.
