Ivanishvili tries on the rank of Prime Minister
Today, Georgian businessman and billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili made a new ambitious statement. As reported by the GHN, now he's going to amaze Europe by the level of democracy in his country. However, he is not going to stay in power more than for 3 years.
"I hope to amaze Europe by the level of democracy which I will set up in Georgia ... It will be a true democracy and even the Europeans will want to invest in Georgia", said Ivanishvili words in an interview to the Reuters.
Realization of his plans will take two or three years after which he will be able to leave politics, said the businessman.
He added that being speaker of parliament or prime minister he intends to solve some problems in the country: a constitutional reform on the basis of public debate about the form of government of Georgia, judicial reform to create guarantees of judicial independence, the eradication of corruption at the highest levels and other measures.
Also, according to Ivanishvili, they should not allow current president of Georgia to remain in power as prime minister. "I know that he (Saakashvili) wants to stay in power ... We must not let this happen", said Ivanishvili in an interview to the Reuters.
Recall, in early October it became known that well-known Georgian businessman Bidzina Ivanishvili intends to establish a new political party. He creates it in order to participate in parliamentary elections in Georgia in 2012.
"I decided to create a party to participate in the parliamentary elections in 2012", said the tycoon in a statement. Today, the press service of the Kartu Groups, owned by a businessman, circulated his statement.
A month earlier Ivanishvili made a statement which criticized directly Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili and his reform of the electoral system of the country.
