The European Georgia parliamentary opposition party has nominated 14 of 22 majoritarian candidates for the regions. 

The news comes after the united opposition bloc was unable to nominate joint majoritarian candidates for regions and two constituencies in the capital Tbilisi. 

The majoritarian candidates of the European Georgia opposition parties for regions are as follows. 

  • Giga Bokeria - Poti, Khobi and Senaki municipalities. 
  • Gigi Ugulava - Zugdidi municipality.
  • Irma Nadirashvili - Rustavi and Gardabani municipalities. 
  • Ahmed Imamkulievi - Marneuli and part of Gardabani municipality. 
  • Arsen Karapetiani - Akhalkalaki and Ninotsminda municipalities. 
  • Otar Kakhidze - Kutaisi municipality. 
  • Sergo Ratiani - Sachkhere, Chiatura and Kharagauli municipalities. 
  • Gigi Tsereteli - Tkibuli, Terjola, Zestafoni and Bagdati municipalities. 
  • Akaki Bobokhidze - Samtredia, Tskaltubo, Vano and Khoni municipalities. 
  • Lela Keburia - Tsalenjikha, Chkhorotsku, Martvili and Abasha municipalities. 
  • Khatuna Gogorishvili - Ozurgeti, Lanchkhuti and Chokhatauri municipalities. 
  • Tariel Nakaidze -  Khelvachauri, Keda, Shuakhevi and Khulo municipalities. 
  • Zurab Chiaberashvili - Telavi, Akhmeta, Kvareli and Lagodekhi municipalities. 
  • Giorgi Gviniashvili - Gurjaani, Sagarejo, Signagi and Dedoplistskaro municipalities. 

In Tbilisi, which has eight constituencies, the European Georgia will have two candidates with the name of the united opposition bloc - Elene Khoshtaria in Vake-Saburtalo and Shalva Shavgulidze in Mtatsminda. 

The elections in the autumn will be held in a different manner from preceding elections, with 120 MPs elected per the party-list based electoral system and the remaining 30 per the majoritarian electoral system. 

The ruling Georgian Dream party has already nominated all 30 of its majoritarian candidates for the upcoming elections, both for the eight constituencies of the capital Tbilisi and the regions.
