Saakashvili Offers Direct Election of Tbilisi Mayor
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 10 Apr.'09 / 15:59

The President’s press office released an English-language statement of Mikheil Saakashvili, which echoes his televised remarks made earlier on April 10.

One of the specifics raised in the written English-language statement is that President Saakashvili is offering the opposition direct election of Tbilisi mayor – a proposal, which was voiced recently by his close allies, but not directly by the President.

In the statement President Saakashvili focuses on the authorities’ moves prior and during the rallies aimed at demonstrating the government’s “full transparency” in handing the demonstration.
