Elguja "Gia" Gvazava (Georgian: ელგუჯა [გია] გვაზავა) (born February 22, 1952) is a Georgian politician. Being a native of Georgia's autonomous republic of Abkhazia and a member of the local legislature since 1991, Gvazava was forced, along with most of the region's Georgian population, to flee the secessionist victory in Abkhazia in 1993.
