A former MP, the brother of the former prime-minister Gogla Zhvania ruled out Mikheil Saakashvili’s return to power. As he said in Malkhaz Gulashvili’s program “Real Politics” on Radio Georgian Times, “Saakashvili’s function was to be a scarecrow”.
“I am far from the idea that Bidzina Ivanishvili went somewhere. I also rule out that somebody would like Saakashvili to return. “Saakashvili is unacceptable for some external interests and Bidzina came in order to make him leave,” Zhvania said.
He also remembered what united the “Georgian Dream” in due time and how people came together around the platform of Saakashvili’s replacement and not around the political idea.
“I know the details, we gathered for Misha’s removal from politics and not for the political platform. Personal confidence towards Bidzina was a uniting factor. “Georgian Dream” is still united around Bidzina Ivanishvili and it is hard to imagine him to quite.
If this happens, the “dream” will collapse like a house of cards and I do not think that he will want this. Ivanishvili was working hard to have own influence in court, government and parliament,” he said.
