It was not voluntary step

Political scientist Ramaz Sakvarelidze in his interview with Kvela Siakhle states that the moving of parliament to Kutaisi is not necessarily related with the May 26, 2011, when opposition manifestation was dispersed.

He stated that Saakashvili ran away from Tbilisi in 2009, when a stadium full of opposition supporters was celebrating Independence Day." Saakashvili thinks that he is not liked by Tbilisi residents and does not like the capital as well. For every difficult situation in the city, Saakashvili runs away from Tbilisi, after Parliament's relocation running will not be needed."

As for the opposition's statements that Saakashvili's current actions are illogical and impulsive, the analyst responded that "I know Saakashvili. He is a very clever politician- a realist and a pragmatist; he is impulsive but nobody should deceive oneself, that he is disabled to analyze the facts adequately."
