No feast for Saakashvili2013-04-04 20:43
Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili will be deprived of the right to take military parade on Independence Day of the country. The head of the parliamentary defense committee said that all the people of Georgia will take the parade. It's unclear what does Irakli Sesiashvili mean under that wording. And Defense Minister Irakli Alasania doesn't haste to reveal details of the coming celebration. Why does the "Georgian Dream" deprive Saakashvili of the opportunity to take the parade?
Saakashvili is now Supreme Commander-in-Chief, but not at all. The first step in this direction was made by the "Georgian Dream". Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Defense and Security Irakli Sesiashvili said that from now "the people of Georgia will take the military parade". "For some reason, until now Saakashvili took the military parade, which is wrong practice," Sesiashvili told reporters.
Georgian Defense Minister Irakli Alasania has further confused the situation. He noted that the 26th of May this year will be radically different from what has been until now. "It will be an impressive and beautiful sight with a military component. Prime Minister and the government are actively connected to these preparations," said Alasania. However, revealing these "secrets", the head of the Defense Ministry has not specified who would take the parade.
Ministry of Defense also has not explained what did the phrase "the people will take the parade" mean. A source in the Defense Ministry of Georgia told the GeorgiaTimes that the details of the parade were not disclosed and were known only to the leadership.
- Alasania did not say a "yes" or "no" about whether Mikheil Saakashvili would take the parade. As for Irakli Sesiashvili, he is clearly running ahead.
- Does this mean that Sesiashvili has disclosed military secret?
- No, maybe he's talking about some other parade, said the source.
But Saakashvili's party members found the words, or rather the reaction of Irakli Alasania, as an action on a principle "Silence is consent."
"If Alasania remembers who the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the country is, it is very good; but if not, we should remind him. Independence Day is an event of great importance to the state, and it must be treated with great respect," Darchiashvili said.
Georgian analysts also find it difficult to answer the question what is meant by "the people."
