Mamuka Khazaradze establishes Lelo movement
The public movement of TBC Bank's founder Mamuka Khazaradze will be called Lelo. Khazaradze made the corresponding statement in Anaklia, where he held a presentation of the movement.

“We are establishing a movement today. The movement, which will be aimed at teamwork, achievement of goals, love, unity and victory of Georgia," Khazaradze said.

According to Mamuka Khazaradze, Anaklia should become a new turning point.

“We are now in Anaklia, where a huge project of enormous potential has to be implemented and
is being implemented. Anaklia is a place where many jobs will be created and it is an opportunity for Georgia to return to its neighborhood, region and world map once and for all.

“This country should not be saved by the messiah or someone else, but each of us, so I’m looking for leaders” - Mamuka Khazaradze said at the presentation of the social movement Lelo.

According to him, his association will find 12 people each in all areas that will be leaders.

“We are looking for a leader, successful people. In the near future, this association will become a political party, a party of leaders, it will be neither Mamuka Khazaradze's party. The movement will have a horizontal structure, focused on results. I understand that in politics there is no need to set specific dates and goals, because people go to politics for the sake of power. However, we will do the opposite, we will set dates and specific goals in order to get this country very quickly out of this situation, or we will be in a swamp. This is a mental swamp. We will find 12 leaders in all areas, 12 reformers in medicine, education, 12 leaders in the villages ... This country should not be saved by the messiah or someone else, but by each of us. And Ilya Chavchavadze was looking for 12 people to save the country. I want us to start this search” - said Khazaradze.
