7 years of Saakashvili’s presidency2011-01-04 15:06
For the first time current president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili was elected on January 4, 2004. Today is the seventh anniversary of his entry into office, News Georgia reports.gt-en-newsitem-inside
It will be remembered that on that very day seven years ago, after the Rose revolution dethroned Edward Shevarnadze, Mikheil Saakashvili was elected president with 96% of vote. In November 2007, after massive protests and dispersions of opposition rallies in the capital of Georgia and the regions, the president announced early elections. On January 5, 2008 he won again mustering 53% of vote.
According to the Constitution of Georgia, Saakashvili can't run for the third term. The next election will take place in two years' time, in 2013. Saakashvili asserts he does not know yet what he will do after his presidency ends. But the opposition accuses him of attempts to preserve power offering wider authorities to prime minister whose position Saakashvili plans to take when his presidency expires, as some sources report.
