Ex-president of Georgia and Ukraine's Head of Executive Committee of Reforms Mikheil Saakashvili accepted the offer of the Georgian opposition to become the prime minister at his homeland in case of the victory at the parliamentary elections in October 2020 as Saakashvili reported on Facebook.
“I gave my consent to united Georgian opposition to become the prime minister in case of the parliamentary elections on October 31,” Saakashvili said.
He explained this decision by a desire to help the Georgian people to emerge from the crisis. That is why Saakashvili agreed to be an interim PM not for a full term but for a stabilization period until the deep crisis is not overcame.
Moreover, the politician added that currently he stays in Ukraine and performs his duties as the Head of the Executive Committee of Reforms.
“For me, the destiny of Ukraine and Georgia are inseparable. I do not choose between two countries; my fight continues in both of those places,” Saakashvili underlined.
Previously, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky assigned Mikheil Saakashvili to the post of Head of Executive Committee of Reforms. This is mentioned in the decree released on the website of the head of the state.
Later, Georgia recalled its ambassador in Kyiv for consultations. Such a move is due to the recent appointment of Mikheil Saakashvili, the former Georgian leader who is, from now on, the head of the Executive Committee of Reforms that works by the President of Ukraine.
