Bakhtadze called on voters to be active and make their choice for a better future for the country and their children.

Today I made a choice in favour of Georgia’s peaceful development and our European choice. I would like to take a chance and address our citizens to go to the polls, make their choice and vote for Georgia's development and a better future for us and our children”, said Bakhtadze.
