New Prime Minister in the New Year?2009-01-10 12:38
Georgia's parliamentary opposition asserts that in January/February the government will undergo serious HR changes. This is a topic of informal discussions between representatives of a number of parliamentary fractions.
It was reported by "Strong Georgia" fraction representative Giya Tsagareishvili to GHN agency on January 6. "Between themselves the parliamentarians are actively discussing it though it is difficult to name the ministers subject to replacement", - Tsagareishvili pointed out.
As he says "the HR redeployment" from the parliament to the executive power is unlikely as the supreme legislative authority has no more resources for that.
Tsagareishvili gave the following reply to the journalists' question whether First Vice Prime Minister, Finance Minister Nika Gilauri will take Prime Minister's office: "Nika Gilauri is a secret careerist and it is not impossible that President will satisfy his ambition".
It will be remembered that Nika Gilauri is Interim Prime Minister of the country. A few days ago "Pirveli" (First) agency reported on Prime Minister Grigol Mgaloblishvili's possible resignation with reference to the government sources. His appointment as Prime Minister was confirmed a month and a half ago. It is believed that the main reason to his resignation is misunderstanding between Prime Minister and President.
Information on Mgaloblishvili's resignation appeared in the foreign media too. Though Georgian government's and President's press offices contradicted it. The Georgian media report that officially the 35-year-old prime minister is under medical treatment in Germany.
On January 5 the head of Prime Minister's press service Avtandil Pavlenishvili stated: "We cannot name the precise date of Prime Minister's return to the country. He is in Germany with his wife and his classmate and childhood friend parliamentarian Goka Gabashvili on the pretext of ill health where he undergoes complex medical examination. Due to overpressure he had sharp renal complications (kidney dysfunction)".
Before that "Alia" newspaper (Tbilisi) with reference to the reliable source from the government reported that Saakashvili had had a fight with Mgaloblishvili. It is said that President struck Prime Minister in the face and threw the mobile at him.
The Georgian media keep insisting that the incident above really took place. According to the version of the Georgian journalists Mgaloblishvili submitted resignation but President did not meet his request.
