Ivanishvili unleashed

Why does the Prime Minister of Georgia make sharp remarks to the journalists at every press conference? What is the reason - in unwanted issues or unbalanced nature of Bidzina Ivanishvili? Emotional outbursts of the Premiere are being actively condemned among the journalists. In turn, Ivanishvili says that it must be so, since a dispute gives birth to the truth.


At a regular monthly press conference Bidzina Ivanishvili again corrects journalists's questions, just like an editor of some edition. The head of the Cabinet does not particularly love the press and TV, and live broadcasts of his press conferences often turn into some kind of a "masterclass" for the media in the air.

Basically, Bidzina Ivanishvili does not love the questions of journalists which he considers "ordered". Sometimes he notes that journalists cannot ask the question properly and clearly, and sometimes advises them to change profession. Here are his words from the last press conference: "Here you are asking me, if I'm going to dismiss Deputy Prosecutor General Lasha Natsvlishvili. And I'm going to ask you a question back - why should he resign - just because journalist Eliso Kiladze wants that? Explain your question. You are not a postman just to bring here a question from editorial office. You are a participant of this process and if necessary you must either clarify question or repeat it, you're not a prompter," said Ivanishvili addressing to the correspondent of the TV channel Rustavi-2.

If we study the history of Ivanishvili's communication with the press and television, it becomes clear why he is so sensitive to "inconvenient questions." Before the decision to enter politics and fight against Mikheil Saakashvili Ivanishvili virtually had no contact with the media. And at the very first press conference after entering politics, the first question to Ivanishvili from the journalist of Georgian Public Television sounded like that: "Society does not know anything about you except that you have a lot of money, and you have not met with journalists, but gave interviews only to those journalists you wanted to. In one of the first statements you attacked the press and TV with accusations. You react badly to the questions that you do not like, and that's how you want to surprise Europe? Is this democracy you are talking about all lately?" the journalist asked the future Prime Minister. And that's what Ivanishvili answered: "I would really like you to come here being prepared and ask questions that concern society, not your leadership."

But the "ordered", according to the Prime Minister, questions are still there which clearly annoys Ivanishvili. He is especially painfully responding to reporters' questions about the personnel changes and the situation within his coalition. And when asked about the threat of pressure on business and the participation of civil servants in various corruption scandals, here Ivanishvili flies into a rage - he either does not answer such questions or again advises the journalists to be "more competent".
