Saakashvili: I'm ready to lead Ukraine's government

Former Georgian president and ex-governor of Ukraine’s Odessa who now leads the Ukrainian opposition Movement of New Forces, Mikhail Saakashvili, said he is ready to become Ukraine’s prime minister, if need be.

"Ukraine urgently needs new authorities, a new government. We must form that government together. I am ready to do it together with you," he said at a rally in front of Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada.

"I am ready to take the leadership of this process with you, I am ready to come at the head of this government, if need be," TASS cited Saakashvili as saying.

Earlier, Saakashvili has repeatedly said he is not after any posts in Ukraine.

Saakashvili promised earlier to organize rallies in front of the Verkhovna Rada each Sunday.
