The Minister of Education Mikheil Batiashvili Resigns

Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia annouced that Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sport, Mikheil Batiashvili, has resigned. 

Gakharia noted it was Mikheil Batiashvili's personal request to resign, confirmed in a later statment from the former minister himself.

Batiashvili was appointed as Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sport in July 2018.

"Of course, first of all, we have to thank Mr. Batiashvili for his hard work, for the systematic and extremely important education reform, and of course for the achievements we have made in the sports and culture direction in recent years," PM Gakharia said.

According to the PM, the most pressing issues for the government are jobs, education and security. "We will focus more on these three areas. Especially the systemic education reform, which requires faster and more effective development, and I am sure my colleagues, the team headed by the Ministry of Education today, will continue to work effectively in this direction," he said.
