“Announcing in this case is the prime minister's prerogative and we have to wait. Try to give the Prime Minister some time to make this decision as effective as possible. I can only say tha”t, said Genadi Margvelashvili.

On the question, will sport component remain in the ministry, Margvelashvili says it is likely to remain in the education ministry as one of the departments.

"Only the culture will come out independently, it has been talked about. I confirm that it is up to the Prime Minister to decide, as he will put together a team," the committee chairman said.
