Opposition United National Movement (UNM) party’s Tbilisi mayoral candidate Nika Melia presented a coalition government on October 20.

Melia named Mamuka Khazaradze from Lelo Party, Zurab Japaridze from Girchi More Freedom, Elene Khoshtaria from Droa and Irakli Abesadze from European Georgia to be deputy mayors.

According to Nika Melia, the coalition government will include heads of municipal services and district governors also from six opposition parties.
