President’s ex teammates criticize his personnel policy2008-12-11 15:30
The leader of "For Just Georgia" movement ex prime minister Zurab Nogaideli considers another change of ministers in the Georgian parliament inadequate and hysterical.
According to him such decisions must be taken by the government only which is in agony now.
As Nogaideli stated at the press conference on Wednesday the personnel policy in Georgia is conveyed in a thoughtless manner and needs thorough reformation.
The change of ministers was commented on by the leader of "Democratic Movement - United Georgia", ex chairman of the Georgian parliament Nino Burdzhanadze at her press conference on her return from abroad.
She, too, believes that management reshuffle in the government was spontaneous and ill-considered and the government's actions do not comply with the current situation in the country.
According to Burdzhnadze such personnel replacements will only damage Georgia's international image.
"The Foreign Minister was dismissed during her mission abroad on the way to an important international meeting. It arouse resentment and bewilderment on the part of the foreign colleagues", - Burdzanadze emphasized.
It will be remembered that over the past few days 5 ministers have been replaced in the Georgian government. Last Friday Prime Minister Grigol Mgaloblishvili forced the head of the Foreign Ministry Ekaterina Tkeshelashvili,Defense Minister David Kezerashvili and Education Minister Giya Nodia to resign. At the same time the position of the Culture Minister became vacant too as Grigol Vashadze who had been appointed to this position around a month before, was back to the Foreign Ministry to take office. The post of Education Minister is now occupied by ex Minister of Justice Nika Gvaramya and the positions of Defense and Culture Ministers were vacant for another three days.
Three days later Prime Minister announced new changes in personnel - he dismissed the Minister of economic development Ekaterina Sharashidze. The ministerial seat was given to ex chairman of the External Relations Committee Lasha Zhvania. His parliamentary colleague, deputy chairman of the Defense and Security Committee Nikolay Rurua was appointed the Culture Minister. And David Sikharulidze, ex ambassador of Georgia to the USA, became the Minister of Defense. On Wednesday Sikharulidze promptly arrived in Tbilisi from the USA and from that day on the ministers officially took up their duties.
