Acting Minister of Internal Affairs of Georgia Eka Zguladze said the structure of the department, budget, progress and problems were discussed in detail during the meeting with the candidate for the post of Interior Minister Irakli Garibashvili.
We agreed that the Ministry of Interior has a very important role for the state, she told reporters.
"We will not tolerate violence in the country; the success of the new minister will really be my success. If I can keep effective authority to him, he will be able to make the ministry more effective, and that is what the country needs," Zguladze said.
She said the meeting was held in Courtyard Marriott hotel.
"It may seem unusual enough that the meeting was not held in the ministry, but I have considered it as a gesture of respect from the new minister, because there is an hierarchy in the ministry, so the fact that we met in another place is a manifestation of favor of both sides," Zguladze said.
She noted that the holding of the meeting outside the ministry was initiated by Garibashvili.
Parliamentary elections were held in Georgia on a mixed - list, majority system.
As a result of the full preliminary data of the Central Election Commission of Georgia, a coalition of Georgian Dream will receive 83 deputy mandates in the parliament, and the United National Movement - 67.
Parliament will receive more authority in 2013 after amendments to the Constitution take effect resulting in the president's power being reduced.
