Fight broke out in the Georgian TV show
03 October, 2018
Fight in the Georgian Show Archevani (a choice) broke out between the guests yesterday. The guests are the Georgian politicians from opposition and the governing parties.

Nika Melia, member of the United National Movement, accused his opponent Zviad Dzidziguri in covering killers. Zviad Dzidziguri has been the chairman of the Conservative Party of Georgia since 2004 and a vice-speaker of the Parliament of Georgia since 2012.

“You are covering murderers” – Nika Melia shouted at Zviad Dzidziguri. The l
atter shouted back at him saying to take a sit.

Then other guests got involved and blamed each other in taking bribes and inability to rule the country.
On the 28th of October presidential elections will be hold in Georgia. Political parties have already represented their candidates and pre-election campaign enters in the most active phase now.

Role of the president is ceremonial as in many parliamentary democracies. Prime Minister is the head of government. The office was first introduced by the Supreme Council of the Republic of Georgia on 14 April 1991, five days after Georgia's declaration of independence from the Soviet Union. The President serves a five-year term. The incumbent is Giorgi Margvelashvili, who was sworn in on 17 November 2013.

Even though the president’s rights were reduced by the new constitution approved this year, the post is still important for the political parties especially for the opposition parties.

25 candidates are officially registered by the Election Administration of Georgia. Among them are politicians from both sides – the ruling party Georgian Dream and other opposition parties.
