The most important part of his agenda was to protect state institutions, especially president’s one, Margvelashvili said.

“This was the reality that myself and my team has faced,” he said, referring to constant power struggle with the ruling Georgian Dream and personally with Bidzina Ivanishvili, formerly his allies.

Margvelashvili added that he would also protect ‘constitutional rights of media, state institutions and civil society in my country…  On the other hand, I would like to express my readiness for active cooperation with newly elected parliament.”

The new parliament, in which Georgian Dream holds enough seats to amend constitution, it is believed that it would somehow curtail presidential power.
