Do you think the President Mikheil Saakashvili should resign?

Thursday, December 20
“I appreciate the cohabitation between the President and the new government, but I think it is impossible for a country like Georgia to exercise and establish such a process. This is why I think it is hard to have an “oppositionist” President.”
Ilia, Lawyer, 27

“Saakashvili’s presidential term expires in January 2013 this is why I think it is time to think of a new president.”
Niko, MA Student, 23

“President Mikheil Saakashvili, who promotes cohabitation in the country, constantly accuses the new government of politically motivated detentions, destruction, etc, while it is he who chaired the team of tyrants the last 8 years.”
Eka, Housewife, 37

“I think he shouldn't, but it doesn’t mean that he is the best. He still has time to be the president and it is up to the elections to define who will be the next president.”
Megi, Teacher, 32

“Well, I think that he should not resign and ‘drag’ his term to the end… appointing snap elections will be an additional expense from the state budget… it is obvious that the current Georgian budget is disabled to allocate some additional money.”
Nino, Social worker, 24

No, not really, I'm not a big fan of it, but think it is better for the country and its international reputation if Saakashvili keeps his post till his service period expires.
Saba, Alwyer 25

“He should not resign. The elections will come and think this should be the only way to change the president in the country.”
Nana, housewife, 52
