Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia’s advisor for strategic communications Irakli Chikovani will also serve as the PM’s spokesperson.

PM Gakharia has stated earlier today that the new position “will increase the quality of the government’s communication with the public and media.”

Chikovani was appointed as the PM’s advisor back in December 2018.

Between 2012 and 2016 he was an MP in parliament as a member of the Free Democrats party.

He left the party and active politics after the 2016 parliamentary elections and had served as an independent expert and was involved in the UNDP and USAID projects before his appointment at the government’s administration last year.
