Most undesirable motherland
Last year Georgia became a leader among the world’s most undesirable places to live. Over 10 thousand people expressed willingness to leave it. It’s a telling characteristic for a country that as President Mikheil Saakashvili believes, has gained full freedom and real democracy, defeated corruption and built up liberal economy. What makes people flee then?
Paranoia among Georgian opposition
Georgian politicians have a unique capacity of accusing each other of all mortal sins taking out heaps of incriminating evidence and mutual accusations. That is why there is practically no chance to tell truth from falsehood. Presently Georgian opposition often calls Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili the Kremlin’s protégé for losing Abkhazia and South Ossetia and throwing the country’s big businesses into the hands of Russian investors. In the heat of the pre-election race Georgian politicians make even more daring assertions: parliamentary opposition believes that Georgia’s government might pursue secret talks with Russian authorities on WTO accession.
