Last week he submitted more than 19.5 thousand supporters to the CEC - in five days he managed to collect signatures twice as much as necessary. The deadline for submitting signatures to the CEC expired on September 1.

The deputy of the Tbilisi sakrebulo (city council) became an independent candidate for the post of the mayor of the Georgian capital. His candidacy, according to legislation, was put forward by the initiative group.
