The ruling party called the opposition’s initiative “another hysterical trick.”
After September 6, the ex-president of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili promised that he would definitely return to his homeland by the day of the municipal elections scheduled for October 2, the Georgian government reminded that he was sentenced to several prison terms for crimes during his time as president of the country, so he will immediately go to a “comfortable cell”.
“I am sure the Georgian people will free themselves and free me. I am not afraid to place my fate in the hands of the Georgian people ”,
– said then the fugitive Georgian president.
This is far from the first promise of Saakashvili to return to Georgia, before that he promised to return to the parliamentary elections last autumn. However, this time his statement was taken seriously by a part of the Georgian society, and the head of the Law and Justice party So Charviani even founded the “General People’s Movement for the Return of Mikhail Saakashvili to Georgia.”
The politician is convinced that the former president must return to his homeland, that his persecution must be stopped and his Georgian citizenship returned to him; at present, Saakashvili is a citizen of Ukraine.
“We have to give him the opportunity to work, he is a brilliant reformer, he has already proved it. We must peacefully return to the country the president who developed the Georgian state, turned the destroyed, extinguished, collapsed Georgian state into a successful country through investments. He put Georgia on its feet ”,
Tako Charviani said.
She stressed that the newly created organization is not a political party, a movement has been created on a voluntary basis and will be truly popular.
A member of the United National Movement party (Mikhail Saakashvili’s party) Georgy Baramidze I am sure that the ruling Georgian Dream party is afraid of Saakashvili’s return, and therefore they threaten him in advance with prison.
“The largest pro-Western force in Georgia is the UNM party with its leader Mikhail Saakashvili, and we must do everything we can to protect him,”
– called Baramidze.
However, the ruling party called the opposition’s initiative to create a “people’s movement” “Another hysterical trick”…
Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili warned that the government would not allow provocations in the country on the eve and during the elections. A George Amilakhvari from the Georgian Dream party advised everyone who wants to defend Saakashvili to get acquainted with his criminal cases, and then get down to business and start an election campaign – the elections are coming soon.
