Georgia, Tbilisi, July 2 / Trend N.Kirtzkhalia /
Georgian Labor Party leader Shalva Natelashvili left for the United States to discuss the situation in Georgia with U.S. political circles, the party told Trend.
Natelashvili will meet with senior officials and discuss the U.S. position on Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili's plan to become prime minister after his second term ends in 2013.
The party earlier wrote a letter to the leaders of several European countries and the United States, urging the leaders of democratic countries and international organizations not to allow Saakashvili to become prime minister, or "otherwise he will forever be in power."
They claimed that a constitutional commission has developed a draft amendment involving the transfer of presidential powers to the prime minister.
Saakashvili recently said "he has thought about such a possibility, but it is too early to say."
