TBILISI, DFWatch–Giorgi Margvelashvili has picked the person who will be new secretary of Georgia’s National Security Council.

At a joint press conference with Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili, he avoided naming who the new secretary is, but said he has his own favorite.

According to Georgian law, the president appoints the secretary of the Security Council. Giga Bokeria, who now holds this post, has said that he will resign before Margvelashvili’s inauguration.

Margvelashvili will appoint new Security Council secretary after the inauguration.

“I have already selected a secretary of the Security Council, but I want him to know about it too. First I have to tell him, and then you,” Margvelashvili said.
