Gilded youth eager to rule Abkhazia
Municipal elections have been held in Abkhazia. They were attended by whole troops – not of voters but of candidates. 85 candidates claimed 26 seats. There has never been such a “full house”: the country is small and the voting is often taken as mere formality, causing almost no interest. This time, things were different, though: only a lazy one did not nominate himself in the elections to the City Assembly.
Mishiko flunks opposition
Here is a new item of Saakashvili’s clownery for his compatriots. Friday’s report in parliament ended in debate with the opposition that gradually erupted into the president’s monologue. The Georgian leader was uncontrollable in his fantasy revealing his new gift – to cop out of nasty questions. Flunking the opposition, Mikheil Nikolozovich made another demonstration of his demagogic talent. The result is brilliant: the country has no problems and Russia is to blame for all things anyway.
Voucher to replace lari
It seems Georgian economy is in such a poor state that even country leaders allow discussion of economic problems in public. Mikheil Saakashvili's speech in parliament was mostly focused on enormous inflation. The solution was found: waiting for an economic miracle people will get by on GEL 30 vouchers. As the leaders of the republic think, this amount will help visitors of Georgian supermarkets feel like real “customers”.2011-02-15 13:37
Saakashvili inventing a revolutionary bicycle
Last week, Mikheil Saakashvili delivered his annual report in the parliament. Summing up the debate with the opposition, the Georgian president took advantage of the moment to glorify his own country in the electors’ eyes. It turns out that bloodless revolutions is a Georgian invention, after which political coups started acquiring “flower” names worldwide. With his eyes downcast, he remarked modestly that mass disorders in North Africa repeat the Rose Revolution scenario. Georgia was named as not the last country in the world that decided to go on a pilgrimage to democracy.
