Non-parliamentary opposition rejected the offers of the President, who was ready to appoint his political opponents deputies of many ministers - RIA Novosti.gt-en-newsitem-inside
At the meeting with United Opposition leader Levan Gachechiladze on June 9th Saakashvili offered opposition posts of deputy heads of MIA, Prosecutor's Office, Security Council and other structures. He also stated ready to hold elections of local authorities in spring 2010, though they were planned for autumn 2010. The President added he was ready to turn to the court to favor release of people, detained in the course of protest actions.
"The president made a serious proposal, but in the current conditions to accept it would be unreasonable," said Kakha Shartava, the National Forum leader. "Now we speak about removal of these criminal elements to let the country live a normal way, what these people impede. Imagining we become their deputies, and will do something with them is inadequate assessment of reality", Shartava said.
Eka Beselia, the Movement for United Georgia leader, stated that the heads of the structures must be dismissed - in the first line, Mikheil Saakashvili, then leaders of siloviki structures. She said opposition rejects President's proposal.
Pikria Chikhridze, the New Rights party leader, called the proposals "inadequate to the situation' and added that real change in the country may occur only after Saakashvili's resignation and calling early elections.
Parliamentary opposition promised to consider the proposals. "We must not reject these offers as if we want just elections in the country, the reorganized Security Council may be their guarantor, and its Secretary from opposition will be able to influence and monitor siloviki structures in the course of elections", said Levan Vepkhvadze, the Vice Speaker from opposition.
