    TBILISI, DFWatch–President Giorgi Margvelashvili on Monday presented Pikria Chikhradze as his new political adviser.

    Chikhradze is active in the New Rightists Party and is most known for her work as a youth activist in the National Liberation Movement, which aimed at gaining independence from the Soviet Union.

    She has served three periods as member of parliament: from 1995 to 1999 as independent MP, from 1999 to 2003 as member of New Rightists and from 2004 to 2008 as an opposition MP.

    In the parliamentary election in 2008, she refused to serve as MP in protest against election fraud.

    In January 2013, she was elected leader of the New Rightists Party.

    President Margvelashvili said his administration has offered her the position as political adviser due to her long and impressive political experience.

    “She will play an important role in our administration and processes where the president and its administration are involved,” he said.
