Americans can make Saakashvili go - opinion
Valeri Gelbakhiani, the Georgian ex-parliamentarian, said next year the country would receive a new president.
In interview to Versia newspaper [Georgia] he announced a meeting of Saakashvili and Obama is planned for December 2010, and the Georgian leader would be announced the necessity to leave his position. "I know a meeting of Saakashvili and Obama is scheduled for December, and the issue would be brought up in this way: either you call snap elections or we wash our hands of it," said the ex-MP, now wanted and accused of involvement in an anti-state plot.
He highlighted the meeting would be held with mass protest actions in Tbilisi as a background. He believes in this case the president of Georgia would be talked to in a language of ultimatum.
"According to information I possess, snap parliamentary elections would be held in Georgia to May 2011," the ex-parliamentarian said.
Gelbakhiani added the Russian government is aware, and had ordered Georgian businessmen to avoid supporting Saakashvili's opponents. "Georgian businessmen working in Russia, received a directive from Russian authorities not to interfere in affairs of Georgian opposition, as America gives Russia guarantee that soon Saakashvili wouldn't be the head of Georgia's administration," the ex-MP said.
