First Deputy Director of the Georgian Public Broadcaster Tinatin Berdzenishvili will temporarily replace resigned Director-General Vasil Maglaperidze, the TV Company Board Chairperson Irina Putkaradze said.
Putkaradze says that Director Maglaperidze's decision to resign was unexpected but 'reasonable.'
In her words, the contest for the selection of the new director has already been announced.
In Putkaradze's words, there have always been questions on Vasil Maglaperidze's affiliation with the Georgian Dream ruling party, and he decided to leave the post for this reason.
Tinatin Berdzenishvili says all the following procedures will continue under the law.
''No radical decisions will be made for a month and a half,'' Berdzenishvili said.
Vasil Maglaperidze resigned as the Director-General of Georgia's Public Broadcaster today.
