The president was asked to tell how many square kilometers of its territory Georgia ceased to control during his rule, why the Georgians had closer communication with the Abkhazians and Ossetians before his presidency, how much the number of independent TV companies in the country was reduced and how far the number of political prisoners grew.
Saakashvili was also asked questions about the growth of unemployment in the times of the "revolutionary government", problems with private property and the way the authorities suppress the development of science, art, culture and sports, VZGLYAD reports.
Let us remind you that six years ago, on November 23, 2003 Georgia experienced the change of power. The opposition did not agree with the results of parliamentary election and came out into the streets. The movement was headed by Mikhail Saakashvili, Nino Burjanadze and Zurab Zhvania.
The dissidents rushed into the parliament building during the speech delivered by the then President of Georgia Eduard Shevardnadze who finally had to submit resignation. Eventually, Saakashvili became the president of Georgia, Burjanadze remained the speaker of parliament and Zhvania was appointed the prime minister.
Georgia set a course for joining NATO and integration into European Union. The United States became the country's strategic partner; they are still providing financial and political assistance to the republic.
