Georgia, Tbilisi, September 4 /Trend N.Kirtzkhalia/
Georgian authorities will take all the necessary measures to hold a fair presidential election avoiding the use of administrative resources, Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili told journalists on Wednesday.
The Prime Minster called on the country's population to honestly vote for their candidates.
"You have elected us and today we are responsible for conducting a fair election. We are ready for this," Ivanishvili said calling on the Georgian population "to make a right choice."
He also called on the population not to vote for short term interests, but for long term programmes aimed at developing the country.
"Listen to the candidates attentively and make conclusions which are necessary for our country," Ivanishvili said.
The presidential election in Georgia is scheduled for October 27.
However according to him, he is leaving politics not to run the government 'behind the scenes'.
"I managed to win the elections and do not intend to leave my post in order to head the country out of the bushes. I don't need this," the Prime Minister stressed.
Ivanishvili noted that he leaves for the public sector in order to create a modern society in Georgia which is 'extremely weak' today.
"There is neither cowardice nor weakness in my decision, as I believe that my new mission will be more important. We are in desperate need of a modern society. It demands a development and I think that we will also manage to ensure public control over the government," he noted.
