Politics

Chkhorotsqu Municipal Assembly (Georgian: ჩხოროწყუს საკრებულო) is a representative body in Chkhorotsqu Municipality, consisting of 27 members which is elected every four years. The last election was held in October 2021. Dato Gogua of Georgian Dream was re-elected mayor in a tight 2nd round against a candidate of the United National Movement. Chkhorotsqu was one of only seven municipalities where ruling Georgian Dream party failed to secure a majority. After several attempts, the opposition parties UNM, For Georgia and Lelo agreed on a chair of the Sakrebulo, but key party For Georgia denied it formed a coalition with any of the other parties.[2][3]
