Saakashvili: No Step Back in Preserving ‘Political Stability’
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 27 Jan.'09 / 21:06

In an obvious reference to the opposition’s calls for early elections, President Saakashvili said on January 27, that he would not allow destabilizing the country just because of some politicians’ ambitions.

Speaking at an opening ceremony of TBC Bank’s branch office in Batumi, Adjara Autonomous Republic, Saakashvili said the authorities would not “step back” in maintaining “political stability,” because it was essential for the country’s economy.

“They are wrong if someone thinks that we will make a mess in Georgia just because of ambitions and whims of some persons,” he said.

“This government will never step back and will use all the measures in frames of democracy in order to maintain political stability and in order to ensure that nobody in Georgia has any fears about what will happen in February, in March, in September, in November, in next three, four or five years, because we are guarantors of the constitution and the constitution is a guarantor of stability and the stability is a guarantee of business and the latter is the guarantee of the Georgia’s development.”

“I guarantee that we will not only maintain the stability, we will not only meet our constitutional commitments, we will not only meet the norms envisaged by the law, but we will protect Georgian economy and political life against any type of internal and external turbulences,” Saakashvili continued.

“We will take decisive measures to ensure that nobody even thinks about shaking Georgia from inside or outside and we will save Georgia from the global economic crisis,” Saakashvili said. “I have assumed this responsibility before the people and we will bear this responsibility to the end, because Georgia in 2013 – when my presidential term expires – is Georgia… where people are happy… and which is protected and united.”

He also spoke about the authorities efforts aimed at preventing the global economic crisis “to enter into Georgia with its full-scale.”

“Of course, there is economic slowdown in Georgia, but no matter how much they [critics] may speak, the global economic crisis has not entered into Georgia at its full scale yet. We should do our best to ensure that the influence of this crisis on Georgian economy is minimal,” he added.
