Vera and the New Year2010-12-31 18:33
Vladimir Lenin once said that even a kitchen maid can manage a state. Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili follows this principle appointing a young and a very good-looking lady, Veronika Kobalia, as the minister of economy and sustainable development. Before her appointment she worked in a bakery in Canada. But let's not judge her abilities to execute her work duties. By the number of media references in 2010 she almost overshadows the president. Today young Vera's compatriots send their New Year congratulations to her.
If it was not for Mikheil Saakashvili who put an eye on her during the White Olympics in Canada, Georgia's current economy minister would most probably still live in British Columbia selling fresh bread in her father's European Breads Bakery. But the Georgian leader gave her a ticket to a new life with tempting promises and prospects. It is still not clear if Kobalia was taken hostage by this decision or not. In 2011, viewed as symbolic for a number of reasons, we do wish she finally have her day.
The year of Tiger, now ending, was a real test for the young female minister. Kobalia rose as the brightest star of the Caucasian republic becoming a favorite for Georgian people and then went drastically down in the eyes of the society, was seen in Facebook network with quite frivolous photos and completed several economic reforms as well as the rebranding of her ministry. On the whole, all last year the young lady was busy working in compliance with her immodest possibilities. It is up to Georgians to decide whether she has made it or not. Judging by the wishes for the next year the decision is definite.
Soso Tsiskarishvili, expert on economic issues:
- My best New Year wishes for the minister of economy that she always find herself in a surrounding that would be adequate for her and refrain from giving people unfeasible tasks and be in a worthier circle of men than she is now. And of course freedom in her own decisions and confidence in her acts. She has a whole life in front of her and I would like to remind her that a good name is sooner lost than won. Good health and happiness!
