Mishiko strangling himself with his “right hand”

Mishiko strangling himself with his “right hand”. 22000.jpegGeorgian newspaper Kviris Palitra conducted a poll showing that the majority of respondents believe Georgian Minister of Interior Vano Merabishvili to be Mikhail Saakashvili's main favourite. Other "medal places" are shared by the following influential ministers: Dmitry Shashkin, Grigol Vashadze, Zurab Adeishvili, unforgettable Vera Kobalia and even Minister of Defense Bacho Akhalaya. The poll held by the newspaper, which is very popular in Georgia,


showed that the citizens are well aware of the political situation and laid open many important tendencies of the Georgian politics that we are going to discuss.

It is year 2011 now and it's time for the Georgian leader Mikhail Saakashvili to think of a successor. After all, he is neither "batka", nor an Asian rich landowner, so he will at least have to create the appearance of a democratic political system in the country and elect a new president pro forma. The task to be solved by the current leader is indeed very complicated: it is not just to select a successor but to ensure succession of the general line and the ideology of Saakashvilian Georgia for another hundred years. It is notable that Misha has spent many years to introduce irreversible changes in his country relating not only to political and economic life but also to people's mentality. But in the end of his two presidential terms, Saakashvili realized that the changes that took place in the country are not at all irreversible. He is still surrounded by millions of people with Soviet mentality and the entire political environment is stuffed with enemies that are only thinking of how to turn the country backwards.

The pool of the president's true supporters remained scanty in the recent years. Everyone with whom he started his way to power and walked hand in hand in the beginning has left him and is breathing down his neck in hope of taking over his seat. But Saakashvili is not going to yield it.

Those questioned by Kviris Palitra yesterday make up the last and, perhaps, most loyal team of his supporters. That is why politically reasonable respondents named the names out of which Misha will have to choose a successor. At first sight, everything is simple: there are Merabishvili, Adeishvili and even Shashkin. All of them play the role of the state leader's "right hand" in turn and it seems that he is their guide and they are his butt-boys though things are different, in fact.
