TBILISI, Oct. 13 (Xinhua) -- The leader of the election coalition Georgian Dream said Saturday that he might name a few more candidates for his future cabinet on Monday next week, but filling up the remaining posts might prove time-consuming.
Consultations were held on Saturday within the six-party election coalition. Georgian Dream leader Bidzina Ivanishvili said the process of forming the next government would be over by the end of next week.
The Georgian billionaire admitted on Saturday that a decisions on nominations for the remaining cabinet posts had "got quite complicated for me."
Ivanishvili has already named 13 coalition candidates for the 20-ministry cabinet, including the ministers for agriculture, culture, defense, diaspora affairs, European integration, foreign affairs, healthcare, infrastructure, internal affairs, justice, legal affairs, reintegration, and sports.
He previously said the election coalition would replace all the ministers in the previous government. The seven portfolios that remain vacant included the ministers for economy, education, employment, energy, environment, finance, and IDPs.
The election coalition has also named its candidates for public service authorities like the central bank, state audit service and national examination center.
The nomination will be submitted to the new parliament for confirmation by the Georgian president.
The Georgian Dream coalition has won the 2012 Georgian parliamentary elections, with 84 seats to 66 seats held by the hitherto ruling United National Movement party. The unicameral legislature of Georgia has 150 seats in all.
But the Georgian Central Election Commission is holding repeat elections on Sunday in at least three constituencies, the results of which might change slightly the formation of the new parliament.
The Georgian Dream leader has also named election coalition members for posts for the speakers and deputy speakers of the new parliament.
