Ivanishvili may cooperate with Burjanadze
Today, the businessman and politician Bidzina Ivanishvili announced his willingness to cooperate with the ex-parliament speaker Nino Burjanadze. As reported by "Georgia News", however, he said that he does not support those methods of struggle against Saakashvili, which are used by Burjanadze.
Today, Georgian weekly "Kviris Palitra" published an interview with Ivanishvili.
"The statements and actions, made by Nino Burjanadze, are contrary to my principles. The main contradiction between us, is that Burjanadze is recognizing the advantage nature of street protests, but I do not", said Ivanishvili. He added that many issues can be resolved.
"... I think we'll remove those questions and agree on the position, and then we'll cooperate with Burjanadze", said Ivanishvili. However, he reiterated that his faction would include only Republican Party and Irakli Alasania's "Our Georgia - Free Democrats".
"I'm not going to unite all the opposition spectrum, I think this is not necessary", added the businessman, noting that in the future, he may cooperate with all professionals, including those who currently work in Government.
"I would like to remind members of current Government and Saakashvili's surroundings, I'm not going to defeat them, on the contrary, I try to use every professional who is currently controled by Saakashvili ...", said the billionaire.
Recall, about a month ago, Ivanishvili made a number of important statements. He expressed his willingness to abandon Russian and French citizenship to take part in the political life of Georgia.
