The European-Georgian Institute (EGI) in cooperation with the National Fund of Democracy of the United States (NED) implements a project to highlight the activities of young politicians and activists.
Following the initiative, they have highlighted a young politician, a member of the party “Ana Dolidze – for the People”, Alexander Samsonidze
