Patarkatsishvili Says he will Run for Presidency
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 10 Nov.'07 / 16:01

Badri Patarkatsishvili said he would run in the January 5 snap presidential elections under the slogan “Georgia without Saakashvili is Georgia without Terror,” Reuters and AFP reported on November 10.

"I have decided to participate in the presidential election," Patarkatsishvili said in an e-mailed statement.

On November 9, Patarkatsishvili told Reuters in a written reply from Tel Aviv, Israel, that he was “seriously thinking” of running for the presidency. The following day he confirmed his intention to run.

Opposition leaders have yet to comment on the report.

The Georgian General Prosecutor’s Office said on November 9 that Patarkatsishvili was suspected of conspiring to overthrow the government. “All the necessary legal proceedings will be undertaken to summon Patarkatsishvili for interrogation as a suspect,” Nika Gvaramia, the deputy chief prosecutor, said.
