Ivanishvili is outraged by Saakashvili's authoritarianism
Recently, Georgian businessman and politician Bidzina Ivanishvili expressed his indignation at authoritarian government of Mikheil Saakashvili on the pages of the French Le Monde. As reported by the GHN, this edition has published Ivanishvili's letter, in which he talks about the reasons for his rise in politics, as well as future plans.
"For a person who is a businessman and who has no experience in politics, it was not an easy debut. I have decided to found a political movement in Georgia, because I'm extremely indignant at authoritarianism of the government of Mikhail Saakashvili. His style of thinking and actions that flow from the principle "the state - that's me", abrogates the balance in Georgia, and slows down the ability for successful reforms in my country", said Ivanishvili in a letter.
He has also expressed his concern that if Georgian society will not be balanced by the current opposition in the country, Georgia will continue its way down - to the exclusion and poverty.
"If the majority will conduct parliamentary elections in 2012 as they did it previously, and in a year - presidential, there won't be carried out necessary reforms, and the country will be ruined by the political and economic instability. After twenty years of turbulent period of independence, Georgia can not afford another revolution", believes Ivanishvili.
