Winning presidential candidate Salome Zurabishvili says that she will visit European states on her first official visits after her inauguration in the role.

I believe that it is not surprising that I will visit European states on my first official trip,” Zurabishvili said.

I will visit Brussels, Paris, Berlin, as well as Baltic states, the country whose female president was the first to congratulate me on my victory late yesterday,” Zurabishvili said.

Zurabishvili will be the country’s first female president who will take the post for six years.

All her successors will be elected by indirect vote, by 300 delegates from Tbilisi and the regions.
