Majority Lawmaker Suspended MP Mandate

MP Shota Shalelashvili, member of the parliamentary majority group, was suspended of his MP mandate during the Parliament’s plenary session on October 1 with 86 votes in favor.

Shota Shalelashvili addressed the Parliament of Georgia with the request to suspend his mandate on September 10, citing his “business activities” as the reason.

Shalelashvili will apparently be replaced by Levan Mgaloblishvili who is next on Georgian Dream’s party list.

Shota Shalelashvili was a member of Georgian Dream – Industrialists faction in the Parliament elected in 2016. He quit the faction in March 2019 and joined the Georgian Dream faction after a group of lawmakers quit the ruling team citing differences over selection of Supreme Court judges.
