“We are a team that has a vision of how the city should develop. We have a plan of what Tbilisi should look like in four years,” Kakha Kaladze, the Georgian Dream’s Tbilisi mayoral candidate, said live on GBP First Channel that hosts the debates between all Tbilisi mayoral candidates.
Kaladze is confident that the capital would win for sure, and all Tbilisi districts would be breathing life.
“Let me greet everyone, my opponents and the guests. I especially want to greet my Tbilisians. Indeed, the most important race is the local self-government election upcoming on October 2. We are a team that has a vision of how the city should develop. We have a plan of what Tbilisi should look like in four years. A few days ago, we elaborated in detail on specific directions in our election program called More Life in Every District. There are six basic policies in our election program – urban policy, transport, environmental policy. These are social and health areas, education, culture, youth, sports. We will voice our vision for management and economics in a few days. I am confident Tbilisi will win for sure, and all the districts will be breathing life,” said Kakha Kaladze.
