Tbilisi (GBC) - Papuna Lezhava, the vice-president of the National Bank, resigned. Natia Turnava, acting President of the National Bank, confirmed the relevant information to the journalists.

"Papuna Lezhava informed me via electronic communication that he has written a resignation letter. He is a good professional, he worked in the National Bank for so many years. I want to say that different people, my colleagues or former colleagues, may have their views on this or that topic. I have no doubt that when it comes to the implementation of the Constitution of Georgia by the National Bank and its compliance with it and the protection of the fundamental rights of Georgian citizens, there should not be two opinions. My position here is clear and irrevocable," said Turnava.
