New rector of Tbilisi State University elected

12-member academic council of the Tbilisi State University (TSU) elected on August 16 Vladimer Papava as new rector of Georgia’s oldest university.

Papava, professor of economics who served as Georgia’s economy minister in 1994-2000, was elected with 10 votes among 13 contenders.

Papava, a senior fellow at the Tbilisi-based think tank Georgian Foundation for Strategic and International Studies (GFSIS), was a member of Parliament in 2004-2008; he was a member of then parliamentary majority UNM, but quit it in November 2007.

TSU rector’s post became vacant after Alexander Kvitashvili, who was healthcare minister in 2008-2010, resigned in June.
