Re-establishment of monarchy is at risk

2009-04-21 17:45

4/6/0/2460.jpegThe plans of the Georgian opposition, which has been demanding the resignation of Saakashvili for two weeks, include a switch to parliamentary government, as well as the re-establishment of the constitutional monarchy. The outcome of the civil confrontation in Georgia is undefined. It has been found that the re-establishment of monarchy is also at risk.


An alliance between the representatives of the two tsar dynasty branches, Anna and David Bagrationi, whose wedding ceremony took place on the 8th of February with the blessing of the Georgian Orthodox Church, turned to be on the verge of a breakup. According to VZGLYAD referring to "Alia", a Georgian newspaper, they no longer live together. Anna's father, Nugzar Bagrationi, said that "anyway, it should take time". He also noticed that, in spite of rumors, Anna did not go into convent but continues her pedagogical activities.

What is the relationship in the Bagrationi family going to be like? High hopes were put on that marriage in Georgia. Someone says that on the wedding day the guests' faces were lighted with even more pleasure than the faces of the newly married couple. The journalists joked: we are only missing Alla Pugacheva with her famous song "Kings may do everything". Combining the state affairs with those of the heart is truly a challenging task. Anyway, we sincerely wish the newly wedded couple happiness and mutual understanding.

Modern democrats, unlike their ideological prototypes at the beginning of the last century, are no longer inclined to see anything bad in monarchy; the more so as some revolutionary leaders have past outdid the most power-hungry sovereigns in the terms of personal power. Adherents of the re-establishment of monarchial government in Georgia are referring to the fact that among monarchies one can name highly developed countries with flourishing democracy and socially oriented economy, such as Norway, the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, not to mention Great Britain. And, of course, Spain (David Bagrationi was born and brought up there - I.P.), where King Juan Karlos was put on the throne after many years of General Franco's dictatorship. So the idea of re-establishing the constitutional monarchy has long been cherished in Georgia.
