Formation[edit]

President Alexander Ankvab and Vice President Mikhail Logua were elected on 26 August 2011 after the death of previous President Sergei Bagapsh, and sworn in on 26 September 2011. Ankvab had been Vice President under Bagapsh and became Acting President following his death. During the election, he competed with Prime Minister Sergei Shamba and opposition leader Raul Khajimba. Mikhail Logua was Head of the Gulripsh District Administration before his election.

On 27 September, Ankvab appointed as Prime Minister Leonid Lakerbaia, his long-time ally and First Vice-Premier under President Bagapsh.[1] Ankvab tasked Lakerbaia with the formation of the cabinet, which took place over the course of October. In comparison to the Government of President Bagapsh, the number of Vice-Premiers was reduced by one, but otherwise Government structure remained unchanged.

Several government members were re-appointed to their previous positions: Alexander Stranichkin as Vice-Premier on 10 October,[2] Mirab Kishmaria and Rauf Tsimtsba as Ministers for Defence and Taxes and Fees on 11 October,[3] Said Tarkil, Zurab Adleiba, Tengiz Lakerbaia and Roman Dbar as Chairmen of the State Committees for Customs, for Repatriation, for Resorts and Tourism and for Ecology and Nature on 14 October,[4][5] Olga Koltukova as Minister for Labour and Social Development on 20 October[6] and on 28 October Zurab Marshan as Minister for Health[7] and Konstantin Katsia as Chairman of the State Committee for State Property and Privatisation.[8] Finally, Aslan Bzhania remained in place as head of the State Security Service.

Two people were appointed to a position they had previously held during President Bagapsh's first term in office: Secretary of the Security Council Otar Khetsia was appointed Interior Minister on 20 October,[6] and on 7 December he was succeeded as Security Council Secretary by historian Stanislav Lakoba.[9]

Besides the appointment of Leonid Lakerbaia as Prime Minister, there were three instances where Ministers of the Government of President Bagapsh were succeeded by their deputies: on 10 October, Vladimir Delba was appointed Vice-Premier and Finance Minister,[2] on 13 October Badr Gunba was appointed Culture Minister[10] and on 27 October, David Iradyan was appointed Minister for the Economy.[11]

Two appointments had up until that point served in an unrelated government position: on 10 October, Leonid Lakerbaia was succeeded as First Vice-Premier by Education Minister Indira Vardania[2] and Vice-Premier and Finance Minister Beslan Kubrava was made Head of the Presidential Staff.[12]

The remaining positions were filled with people from outside the central government. On 11 October, diplomat and academic Viacheslav Chirikba was appointed Minister for Foreign Affairs.[3] On 18 October, MP Beslan Jopua became Minister for Agriculture.[13] On 20 October, Marina Ladaria was appointed Chief of the Cabinet Staff[14] and the writer Daur Nachkebia Minister for Education.[6] On 28 October, Shazina Avidzba was appointed Chairman of the State Committee for Youth and Sports, she had up until then held a similar position in the Sukhumi City administration.[8] Finally, on 31 October, Sukhumi Municipal Court Judge Yekaterina Onishchenko was appointed Minister for Justice.[15]
