Okruashvili is looking to become a president
Former Defense Minister of Georgia Irakli Okruashvili is behind the bars for almost a month.

But there are some suggestions in this regard. And one of them is this: in fact, former Saakashvili's ally and now a member of the opposition is willing to take the presidency. He is even ready to go for a temporary stay in prison for the sake of this.

Georgians do not even dream of the EU?
Recently, in a speech in Strasbourg, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili said that the European integration was a priority for the country. "Nothing will stand on the way of European enthusiasm for my people, their desires and aspirations to unite with Europe. I came here as a carrier of a hope and faith: Europe is our future", said the Georgian president. Thus, he was hinting that the Georgians may be unhappy with the "political orientation" of the current parliamentary majority which is not showing such "enthusiasm". However, in reality, few people in Georgia share Saakashvili's emotions towards the European Union. Indeed, the majority of ordinary Georgians see in the EU not the bright future nut the fate of cheap and often disenfranchised workers.
