Election number 3
Law is something non-parliamentary opposition candidate Kakha Kukava is passionate about.
The 41-year-old began his professional career after graduating with a law degree from Tbilisi State University.
Kukava ran for Tbilisi mayor in 2014 as well and gained 2.32 percent of total votes, which did not allow him to run at the runoff elections.
In 2010 Kukava was elected a member of Tbilisi City Assembly, where he periodically performed the duties of chairman duties of the faction.
In 2004 he was elected as a member of parliament but he soon quit the parliamentary majority in protest against policies by then-President Mikheil Saakashvili.
Since 2001, the married father of two has been involved in the private practice of law.
