"Arab Spring" threatens Saakashvili2011-10-27 13:03
Tbilisi City Court refused to restore the civil rights of billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili. Thus, the Georgian justice has once again demonstrated that they are under full control of President Saakashvili.
Authorities are consistently showing their inability to update and unwillingness to engage in dialogue with society and opposition. Disgraced businessman has stateted: the election, if he won't be allowed to participate, would not be legitimate. Coupled with the support, expressed to Bidzina Ivanishvili by Western diplomats, such splitting of the elites can lead to "gaddafization" of Georgia.
The refusal of Tbilisi court to satisfy a claim of influential businessman on the restoration of himself and his wife in their civil rights may be regarded as Saakashvili's and his minions' fear of honest political struggle. Ivanishvili's lawyers called this verdict an attempt to give short shrift to political opponents and declared their intention to appeal against the court's refusal in the coming days. The opposition leaders hastened to express Their support for the businessman and philanthropist.
"We see in him an honest man who keeps his word. We see that we need to break the monopoly of Saakashvili's power. Georgia is now more than ever in need of a free competition in business and in politics", said the leader of "Our Georgia - Free Democrats" Irakli Alasania.
But, of course, Avlabar despot does not care of the opposition's opinion. It is quite another matter - that goodwill, which last week Western diplomats showed Bidzina Ivanishvili. He considers that the demand for Saakashvili to provide information openness in the country, voiced by U.S. Ambassador John Bass, actually didn't meant a support for the current regime from Washington.
"Of course I loved the reaction of the U.S. Ambassador to Georgia John Bass, and I even expected it. I liked that in contrast to Saakashvili's government, he assessed the position absolutely objectively and realistically and placed the appropriate emphasis. I would not call it support. Most likely I would say that he has put quite clear accents very diplomatically. There was a correct assessment of the processes. He made the correct instructions to Saakashvili government, rather than supporting me. I can note two particular emphasis: open information space and to refrain from violence. I think, he has called up them rather than supported me, however, in parallel, it is the same", said Ivanishvili in an interview to French "Liberali".
And Georgian rulers understood this very clearly. There are already signs that the ruling party is splitting. Saakashvili's team has thought of the possibility to get rid of their odious leader. "I think the process of division will soon begin in ranks of ruling party, one of the leaders of the Republican Levan Berdzenishvili shared his opinion with a newspaper "Kweli Siahle". Six people who actually rule the country, are already considering a possibility to get rid of Saakashvili".
Desperately clinging to power Mishiko, whose legitimacy was questioned by Western diplomats, has become less suitable for his accomplices because Bidzina Ivanishvili already vouched that, after coming to power he is not going to unleash repression against the former leadership.
