Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili on whose initiative the country's constitution was literally rewritten, has changed his mind refusing to become Prime Minister.

According to the Georgian leader, head of the government "is completely dependent on the country's parliament". Is he sure that outside government he will avoid clingy hands of international justice? As politologists repeated many times, Mikheil Nikolayevich will end up in prison.


In an interview with EurActiv news agency (Europe), Saakashvili was overly frank. Speaking about a possibility to take charge of government when his presidential powers expire, he stated: "It does not seem an attractive option for a man who is presently Georgia's president". Mikheil Nikolayevich explained: according to the new constitution of Georgia, the president enjoys wide powers. Though prime minister is an important figure, still he is completely dependent on the parliament.

One might ask a question: either Saakashvili lies, or he's gone mad. Many should remember his scandalous rewriting of the country's main document - Constitution. The opposition was infuriated commenting on transfer of all governing powers to prime minister. The president seat with "all seat belts" was the phrase the opposition used to describe Mishiko's political future. Gigi Ugulava, now mayor of Tbilisi, was viewed as his successor for presidency.

Yet, the current president that has lost all trust inside the country and abroad does not want to be PM any more. Then why did he need all those conditions? Realizing awkwardness of the situation, his loyal administration came into play. As presidential spokesperson Manana Mafdzhgaladze states, part of Saakashvili's interview over his political future is not a complete and precise content of what the president discussed with the journalist. "For Mikheil Saakashvili it is not important what he will do after 2013, he is concerned with what his country will be in two years' time and the way reforms carried out by Georgian leaders over the past few years will be pursued, - she emphasized. - The president of Georgia does not make comments on his future career. We wish to explain that any discussion over the issue is nothing but speculation".
