Gocha Dzasokhov: Saakashvili puts his personal ambition above the state2013-03-05 17:28
On March 4, in Tbilisi there was held a meeting of the Prime Minister of Georgia Bidzina Ivanishvili with President Mikheil Saakashvili. A conversation between two politicians has not brought any results. Ivanishvili said the meeting was held "for the sake of meeting". But Saakashvili said he felt uncomfortable as Georgian president and put forward the "Georgian Dream" a number of requirements. President of the "Assembly of Peoples of Georgia", deputy chairman of the "Greens" Gocha Dzasokhov has expressed his frustration with the situation.
Initially, there has occurred a mix-up with the date of the meeting. It was reported the meeting was to be held on Friday but was disrupted, since Saakashvili was traveling abroad. Representatives of the coalition "Georgian Dream" had accused the president of disrupting the agreed meeting, but his spokeswoman Manana Manjgaladze has denied the accusations.
"This meeting was an initiative and the idea of the president, so it is groundless to accuse the president of disrupting a meeting. Premier expressed an initiative to hold the meeting today, but due to the president's schedule it has not taken place. Therefore, the president proposed to hold a meeting on Monday morning. The first face of the country has publicly confirmed his readiness to meet with the Prime Minister where he wishes", said Manjgaladze.
In response, the prime minister's press office issued a brief statement in reiterating its readiness for a meeting with the president. "The Administration of the president of Georgia made a statement that Mikheil Saakashvili offered Bidzina Ivanishvili to hold a meeting on Monday morning. Georgian Prime Minister still agrees and is willing to meet with the president", said the press service of the head of government.
After all the difficulties the meeting took place. It was held at the presidential residence, located in the State Office Building, behind closed doors. Based on its results, Saakashvili said that despite the fact that in the current situation he felt uncomfortable in the office, his duty as the head of state was to maintain civilized relations with political opponents in the name of democratic values.
"The meeting was very interesting. "Interesting" means that we have fundamentally different views with Bidzina Ivanishvili, but it's good that we still have the opportunity to meet, and we have had such meetings and we have talked in person about these issues, rather than in the presence of TV cameras and reporters", he said.
