Saakashvili adjusts Constitution to his purposes – mass media2010-06-09 13:15
The new edition of the Constitution of Georgia implies reinforcement of PM's authorities. At the same time, Mikheil Saakashvili cannot rule out his occupying this position after expiration the presidential term in 2013, the VZGLYAD reports citing to Rezonansi.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"It's hard for Saakashvili to be parted with the helm of power," the media states.
According to the new edition of Constitution the entire Cabinet, including the PM, will be proposed in the Parliament by the winner party and endorsed by the parliamentary majourity, the newspaper reports.
Previously Mikheil Saakashvili said he doesn't rule out possibility of occupying Prime Minister's position after expiration of his presidential term.
In the interview to Le Monde he said he thought much about this opportunity, but much remains unclear.
When asked whether he'd like to become the PM "like Vladimir Putin", the Georgian leader responded "Putin is Putin..." and explained he's now attracted by freedom and ability to walk around the city without bodyguards.
Saakashvili admitted he doesn't know what his steps in politics will be after 2013, as "decision will depend on many factors": economic situation, status of the constitutional reform, own mood and political rating.
Nevertheless, Saakashvili said his primary aim is continuation of reforms in Georgia. "I have created a party which will outlive me. In my political practice, I realized that reforms seriously expend previously acquired popularity. In the end, nobody loves you, but then people are still grateful for your work. One ensues the other," he shared.
