Davyd Arakhamia, chairman of the Servant of the People party's parliamentary faction, commented on the appointment of Mikheil Saakashvili as Deputy Prime Minister for reforms, as 112 Ukraine reported.
“As for Mikheil, I think he has enough charisma, arguments to convince the MPs. For some reason, everyone just decided that it would be like then, in one day - someone will announce the candidacy, and then everyone will go. We agreed two weeks ago with the President’s office that this will not happen for anyone, and we will move on with the normal democratic process of selecting any important person in the government," Arakhamia said.
Arakhamia noted that he heard about Saakashvili's candidacy 4 months ago, but it ‘was not in the active phase then’.
The chairman of the faction noted that the post for Saakashvili was offered by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky.
As we reported before, former President of Georgia and former Chairman of Odesa Regional State Administration Mikheil Saakashvili said that President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky had instructed him to negotiate with the International Monetary Fund.
