Georgia not to Change Its Economic Way: Ambassador
Azerbaijan, Baku /corr. Trend K.Ramazanova / If a new President comes to power in Georgia, the economic relations with Azerbaijan will be developed stably, Georgia's Ambassador to Azerbaijan, Nikolaze Natbiladze, reported to Trend on 15 December. The presidential elections in Georgia will take place on 5 January.
"We expect that the previous way will be continuing," he said. According to Natbiladze, no changes will take place in realizing international economic projects where Georgia co-operates with Azerbaijan. The economic side of the co-operation between the two countries requires special attention, and I consider that this growth will be continuing. The Parliament of Georgia decided to hold early Presidential elections after mass demonstrations in November took place all over the country with a requirement of resignation of the current President Mikhail Saakashvili.
Some 16 candidates have been registered in Georgia. Saakashvili is a candidate from the Unified National Movement. He tops the ranking of the candidates in the survey held by the Center of Political Studies GCG. Some 54,5% of the respondents stands ready to vote for Saakashvili. The opposition is represented in the elections by Levan Gachicheladze.
