The largest opposition party kicked off the reorganization on January 10, appointing Koba Nakopia as the chair of its Political Council and Tsiskarishvili as the General Secretary.
Party leader Nika Melia said then that an “active process of renewal” would continue in both Tbilisi and regional branches of the party.
