One week after officially taking over as Georgia’s new Prime Minister, Giorgi Gakharia met with the Georgian Patriarch Ilia II at the Patriarchate in Tbilisi.
His Beatitude Patriarch Ilia blessed the PM and wished him success in the new post, the administration of the government of Georgia wrote on Sunday, Sept. 15, as reported by Agenda.
Gakharia officially took the post on September 8, after the resignation of Mamuka Bakhtadze.
Georgian Patriarch Ilia II is one of the most trusted public figures, surveys suggest.
