A liberal, free democratic revolution does not wave any flags, says President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"Some people think that the main point is to stage everything, raise the flag, fill the gasoline tanks, start for the regions, go to Mtskheta from there, set up TV cameras and shoot the process of entering a town", - the president reminded.
He says that the Georgian people have already seen all this during the Rose Revolution and afterwards, various political powers tried to imitate the same process.
Saakashvili believes that Rose Revolution that started in 2003 is not over yet.
"Revolution enables the nation to hold more power over its leaders, to become the sovereign of its own country and it makes the people more important than a certain historical person", - the president explained.
He says that a revolution means creating a society with open economy, a society where corruption is eliminated and unacceptable and where the bureaucratic machine serves the needs of the people.
"This was the only right way to choose for the Georgian people then... This way is irreversible and we are not going to turn aside", - Saakashvili stated.
He pointed out that six years ago Georgia was a corrupted and a failed state, while today it occupies the 11th place in the World Bank's rating in terms of favorableness of environment for starting a business.
"The Georgian policemen do not take bribes from drivers. We have established a system when everyone is free to hold meetings. Today, such appeals as "We must bring back our honor" actually mean "We must bring back our privileges". Those who call us the power of violation have not yet come out from Aslan Abashidze's offices. They will get on Guinness World Records due to the number of toasts drunk for Aslan Abashidze", - Saakashvili concluded.
