Politician
Abkhazia (GE)
 
Adjar state council chairman (head of Adjara Autonomous Republic).
Leader of the Revival Union in November 2003 elections.

Abashidze was born in 1938 into a noble family of hereditary aristocrats. In the Soviet times his career peaked in late 1980s when he served on the modest post of the Public Utilities Minister of the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic, after being the deputy of the same ministry in Adjara in 1984-86.

Abashidze has derived biggest dividends from the military coup that unseated Gamsakhurdia in Georgia in 1992. He drew a virtual borderline between the autonomous republic Adjara and the rest of Georgia.

In the November 2003 elections, Abashidze and his Revival Union lead the official voting results before the revolution of roses got Saakashvili a 95% (and honest this time) election victory.
