2010-01-28 12:54

Georgian mass media are actively discussing possible successors of Bacho Akhalaya in position of the Minister of Defense.


In the view of All News [Tbilisi newspaper], most possible candidates are Batu Kutelia [ambassador to the USA] and Gela Bezhuashvili [head of foreign intelligence service] - VZGLYAD.

One more possible candidate is Dimitri Shashkin, the present-day Minister of Education.

Previously the Georgian media stated the decision to replace Bacho Akhalaya was made by President Saakashvili under pressure of the West, as that Minister of Defense is considered quite an obnoxious figure in the Cabinet. Previously he headed the penitentiary department in the Ministry of Justice. Society and opposition campaigned against his appointment to the position of the Minister of Defense.

According to the newspaper, Akhalaya can become the National Security Council, instead of Eka Tkeshelashvili, the latter would be sent as the UN Permanent Representative.

Previously Batu Kutelia was the deputy Minister of Defense; Gela Bezhuashvili - the Minister [of Defense].
