Ex-Minister of defense: Saakashvili can be replaced by Ugulava

2010-05-28 12:34

Irakli Okruashvili, the ex-Minister of Defense, believes the forthcoming elections on Sunday the rehearsal of shift of presidential power.


It was announced in the live air of Maestro TV channel from France, the country of his political asylum - Novosti-Gruzia.

Okruashvili believes that the present-day Mayor of Tbilisi, Giorgi Ugulava, also running for Tbilisi Mayor in the upcoming elections, is preparing for presidentship. Yet, in his opinion, it's just a formality necessary to let Ivane Merabishvili [Interior Minister] and Georgi Bokeria [deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs] preserve power.

For this purpose, Okruashvili continued, a new draft Constitution, undermining the presidential institution, was prepared. "This Constitution is done to make Ugulava the President, but I quotes, and in fact - to let Bokeria and Merabishvili take power and preserve it," he said.

He's convinced the victory of the ruling party at the coming elections is imminent. The ex-Minister is sure the reason for this are unequal conditions of the electoral campaign, and that's why he refused to participate.
