Mass media: Shashkin to become the new PM

2009-12-09 14:05

Dimitri Shashkin, the ex-Minister for Penitentiary, who not so long ago became the Minister of Education, will soon head the Georgian government - Banks and Finance [Tbilisi media]. They add the President has already made that decision.


The appointment must happen within 2 months, and recent Shashkin's shift to the new position was made to let him start from more "respectable" post - the VZGLYAD.

According to the media, Shashkin's appointment will allow Saakashvili to confirm the pro-American course [for years he was working in IRI, monitoring elections] and decline charges of anti-Russian approach [Shashkin is ethnical Russian, finished Russian school in Tbilisi].

The Banks and Finance say the present-day PM, Nikoloz Gilauri, will return to the Minister of Finance position with expanded authority.

The media also say that in present-day Georgia the position of the Minister of Finance has no great significance, as in fact all economic processes are still ruled by Kakha Bendukidze, the former Russian oligarch, the ex-State Minister for Economic Reforms. "Bendukidze makes all decisions, what to sell, what to buy," the newspaper notes.
