Mikhail Saakashvili's last year2012-01-04 13:02
Over the past year, Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili has made a lot of loud statements about the development of the republic in almost all the fields. It was about the arming of the country, accession to NATO, the ease of doing business in Georgia and even about football. However, President has fulfilled not all the promises.
Mikhail Saakashvili gave first promise at the very end of 2010, at the ceremony of taking the oath from the cadets of Special State Protection Service. The Georgian leader said that the strengthening of the armed forces was extremely important for the economics and future generations. Mikhail has not lied. The Army of the republic has been really always included in the list of policy priorities of the country. And the 2011 was not exception. Georgian soldiers have passed a variety of courses, received new armaments and actively participated in counter-terrorist operation in Afghanistan. In addition, the Georgian military-industrial complex has produced armored vehicles of local production called "Didgori" which was presented at the parade in honor of Independence Day of the republic.
called "Didgori" which was presented at the parade in honor of Independence Day of the republic.
Already in February, when the Israeli businessmen Roni Fuchs and Zeev Frankel ended up in jail on suspicion of bribery, Mikhail Saakashvili made another loud statement. He stressed that the country was fighting corruption, and there was no exclusions in this struggle. In a word - he made it clear that if the court thought fit, then investors would sit. In the end, it happened; but in the end of the year, after numerous appeals oif Israeli officials, Fuchs and Frankel were pardoned. Without a doubt, the gesture of the Georgian leadership deserves respect. But the discrepancy with Saakashvili's words on judicial independence is obvious.
In the spring, the Georgian president called on the government in every way to help various ethnic groups living in the country to learn the Georgian language. "I am concerned that thousands of our citizens who live in the regions densely populated by ethnic groups, despite all the measures the most of them do not know the Georgian language at a level to be able to make successful career", said Mikhail Saakashvili. He added that he would be glad if members of different ethnic groups were more represented at various positions in government and parliament. Study of the Georgian language in the country really has been strengthened. Though, in some areas it has been done by reducing the number of subjects in other languages. For example, this occurred in the province of Samtskhe-Javakheti.
