Georgia, Tbilisi, 11 March / Trend corr N. Kirtskhalia/ Georgia is not ready for monarchy. The Patriarch of Georgia Ilia II said on 9 March that the ecclesiastics and civilians discussed changing the Government into a monarchy.
"Neither the nation nor any monarchical person is ready for a monarchy at this point in time. Preparations for that should be held stage-by-stage," the Patriarch said.
Ilia II initiated discussions on a Constitutional Monarchy two months ago. Clerical circles stated that the Patriarch can temporarily take on the monarch position until an adequate legatee from the Bagrationi dynasty grows up at the Church.
