Saakashvili suffers without successors2011-01-28 19:34
President of Georgia discussed a great number of topics in his controversial TV performance named "President Answers Questions" mentioning economic development, agriculture, justification of barbarous eviction of refugees, and Russia in his glorious metaphor about a "crocodile". Most of his speech was serene. There was one thing that makes Mikheil Nikolozovich sad - absence of a successor to whom the country can be entrusted.
According to Georgian president, almost everything in his country is fine. And what has not been fixed up yet, will soon be brought in compliance with best models thanks to "supermen" and "superwomen" from the government. On the contrary, the opposition is not doing so well as Saakashvili told live on FCC. "Today's situation is better than 2007-2008, or 2009, but this is not what we need. I want a strong opposition that won't bring the country to a catastrophe in case of victory in the election", - the Georgian president said.
"The opposition must be different discussing things that truly concern people. The opposition must place interests of the country above their personal interests, or at least at the same level. And the main thing, the opposition must take a test to check its relation to corruption, mafia bosses and Russia", - Saakashvili added.
Basically, it sounds like another pre-election statement. The Constitution of the republic does not allow Mikheil Nikolozovich to run for another presidential term. Nonetheless, the president of Georgia managed to rewrite the country's main document at his convenience by transferring all power levers to prime minister from 2013. Naturally, the eccentric Georgian leader now has PM-ship as his ambition. Thus no one will ever keep him from directing country citizens to the only right path with his wise advice and instructions. Even now Mishiko is trying to prove that all his current rivals on the political arena are not worth a farthing.
Those whom the president's address was meant for have already replied. According to Guram Chakhvadze, a National democrat, there are sober-minded politicians in the ranks of the opposition that will always find correct answers to the questions that people ask. And as we know, this is medical care, social sphere and agriculture.
However, it is absolutely evident that Mikheil Saakashvili is not well at ease. He understands that change of the ruling regime in the country is fraught with his emigration to US friends - at best or there is a worse option, and a more probable one - a place on a prisoners' dock. He himself knows that the opposition's views correspond with real concerns of Georgian people. That is why he launches preventive strikes.
Presently, only pocket opposition is recognized as existing in Georgia. It is allowed to sit tranquilly in parliament and some of its initiatives are even noticed - particularly when these initiatives coincide with the aspirations of the ruling course, like it happened to "Freedom Charter" proposed by Georgi Tortladze, Strong Georgia faction chair. The rest of the opposition, particularly, Saakashvili's former supporters like Nino Burdzhanadze and Zurab Nogaideli are labeled traitors of motherland unworthy of being mentioned in official mass media and statements of representatives of the current regime. Even if they don't raise the issue of probable recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia as independent - all the same they are cursed with nasty epithets.
