Presidential elections were held in Georgia, in which the sole leader was not determined. Out of 25 candidates, two candidates made it to the second round, gaining about 40 percent. At the same time, one of the contenders for the Georgian leader, the head of the Labor Party, Shalva Natelashvili, had previously stated that if he became president of Georgia, even in violation of the Constitution, he would move all casinos located in Tbilisi outside the city.
However, according to the results of the first round, it became clear that the ardent opponent of gambling establishments did not manage to continue the struggle for the presidency, he took only fourth place. Only a little less than 4% of Georgian citizens voted for Shalva Natelashvili.
