14 January 2013 - 8:14pm

 

Former Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze advised the current

president Mikheil Saakashvili to resign. According to him, there is no

point for  Saakashvili to stay in office because he is losing

influence in the country and in its environment.

 

"What is the President, when his environment does not support him. But

the main thing is that the Georgian people will not recognize

Saakashvili as their president, and if he has a conscience, after all

this, he should resign," said Shevardnadze in an interview with the

Georgian newspaper "Asaval Dasavali", cited by "Interfax-Ukraine".

 

Shevardnadze also warned that Saakashvili "is particularly dangerous,

because all his actions are motivated by hatred of the incumbent

prime-minister Ivanishvili."
