Georgia Presidential election Dates 2018

Georgia Presidential election Date: 28 October 2018

Presidential elections will be held in Georgia in October 2018, the seventh presidential elections since the country's restoration of independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. The last elections in October 2013 resulted in a victory for Giorgi Margvelashvili, a candidate for the Georgian Dream coalition.

Following amendments to the constitution in 2017, the 2018 elections will be the last direct presidential vote; after 2018 presidents will be elected by the 300-member College of Electors. In view of these changes, the term of office of the President to be elected in 2018 will have a term of six years.
