It is also possible not to be president…

However, nothing stops him from commenting on what is happening. So Shevardnadze restrained the expectations of Nino Anzorovna's supporters, saying that she does not have a particularly good chance to win. In his opinion, Burjanadze's career ended in failure and she should have left politics back in 2007 when the authorities broke up the opposition rally and when several deputies staged a hunger strike in her reception room.

Shevardnadze also does not share the hopes being pinned on Irakli Alasania. In the former president's opinion, he is too young to be president.


"The head of state should be no younger than 60 and no older than 70," quotes the former president, "but Alasania could be appointed prime minister". At the same time, Shevardnadze said that he has his eye on two potential candidates for the presidential post, but that he was not going to reveal their names.

It is quite possible that all the intrigue surrounding Georgia's political future is still ahead, the fight for the place at the helm is still to come, and the main players are still in the shadows. Who knows - maybe we shouldn't brush aside the opinion of the "silver fox"?
