Bakhtadze did not name his renewed Cabinet of Ministers today as the decrease in the number of ministries requires legal changes.

Bakhtadze said that initially, in the coming two days, parliament will vote on the existing Cabinet of Ministers formally and if the Cabinet gains the parliament’s support, they will initiate an amendment to decrease the number of ministries to 11.

The Head of Parliament’s Procedural Committee Giorgi Kakhiani said that foreign, finance and economy ministers will be changed at least.

"There will be new faces in the cabinet,” Bakhtadze confirmed.

"We believe that in 2-3 weeks I will be able to name the renewed cabinet,” he added.

Bakhtadze was nominated for the post of prime minister by the Georgian Dream ruling party after the resignation of Giorgi Kvirikashvili on June 13.

The number of ministries was decreased from 18 to 14 last year.
