The President of Georgia did not directly answer the question on whether he will take the post of prime minister of Georgia in 2013, after resigning as president. "The main thing now is to focus on the core task - the decentralization of power, and let me do it," Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili said today on live ether within the project "The President answers questions of the people". 

"I have left nearly three years, and I focus on this issue," he said.

Saakashvili stressed that "the main thing is not where I will be, but then where the country will be." "I advise everyone to adhere to this postulate," he said. According to the President, now Georgia adopted a Constitution, which involves the collective leadership of the country, not unity of command.
Georgia's new constitution is intended to increase the role of prime minister in the country, against which, Saakashvili himself protested, who did not want to weaken the powers of the president.

"We have survived the internal strife, economic embargo, large-scale intervention, and only now we have the opportunity to build, although 20 percent of our territory has been captured," Saakashvili said.
