Akhvlediani: Saakashvili is the best seller of “rotten meat”2011-04-19 12:30
One of the leaders of the Georgian Christian-Democrats Giorgi Akhvlediani stated that the basis of Mikhail Saakashvili's rule is creating informational coverage of the authorities' actions.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"I would call President Saakashvili one of the best PR-managers in the world. He knows very well how to sell rotten meat so as no one would notice it", - Akhvlediani is cited by Gazeta.ru.
According to the oppositional representative, the Georgian government creates "informational vacuum" where the leading national TV channels are controlled by the state and a relatively oppositional viewpoint is available only to the citizens of the metropolitan area. "If the opposition succeeds in revealing the problems before the six-o'clock news broadcast then it is lucky. But people come home after their working day and hear in prime time that everything is just ideal in our country. The same goes on beyond the country", - he underlined.
It should be noted that earlier, Akhvlediani stated that the Georgian president will have to put up with the idea of the inevitability of his resignation in 2013.
"I welcome Saakashvili's overt confession. This man has evidently started thinking and getting ready for the "post-Saakashvili" period, or else Saakashvili is gradually putting up with the fact that he will have to give up his high post and high politics in 2013, and is thinking of how to make his resignation least painful for the country", - Akhvlediani said, meaning Saakashvili's statements made in his interview to Valstybe Lithuanian magazine.
In the opinion of the oppositional deputy, if Saakashvili arrives at a decision to keep the helm of the state by all means it will bring a lot of misfortunes both to the country and the president himself.
Akhvlediani also remarked that "Mikhail Saakashvili should not worry so much about the opposition's power and weakness".
In the same interview, President of Georgia stated that the opposition is very weak in the country.
