Georgian PM Bakhtadze resigns

Mamuka Bakhtadze becomes the fourth head of the Georgian government to resign from office since 2012, ONA reports citing Sputnik.

The country’s Parliament has to approve another candidate from the governing party in the next two weeks.

"The development framework has been created ... and therefore I have decided to resign as I believe I have accomplished my mission at this stage", Bakhtadze wrote on Facebook.

According to Georgian legislation, the government steps down when the prime minister resigns. Ministers will continue fulfilling their duties until the Parliament approves the composition of a new cabinet.
