Expert: Billionaire Ivanishvili comes to politics with difficult plans
Georgia, Tbilisi, Oct. 7 /Trend, N.Kirtskhalia/
Bidzina Ivanishvili will come to politics with the bills, which are difficult to cash out, Georgian expert Soso Tsintsadze told Trend. He believes that the plans, reflected in the statement issued today by the press office of the businessman, are difficult to be implemented.
According to expert, several ideas reflected in the statement, for example regarding broadcasters and journalists, give rise to suspicions that the near circle of businessman looks at events naively.
"Ivanishvili goes to politics with a principle - all or nothing. Such maximalism often leads to collapse, especially very little time has left for elections in 2012," he said.
The expert believes that in order to succeed, Ivanishvili needs a pretty big intellectual and human resource which is deficit today.
"His success will largely depend on several preconditions. It is clear that the problem of financial is absent, but the identical question is the circle of people whom he gets around to implement wide-ranging and politically ambitious plans. I doubt that today in Georgia it is possible to find tens of people who really can do it. Such people are already engaged in the ruling party or in the opposition," said Tsintsadze.
According to expert, money in politics is very important, but not decisive.
"In world politics there was no precedent that the money became a decisive factor in the elections. This does not happen in Russia as well. If money is not accompanied by intellectual and human resources, then nothing will happen. Napoleon himself could not become such a triumphant without such commanders as Nelson, Lan and Devu," said the expert.
He also finds it impossible to implement the ambitious plans of the businessman for 2-3 years as noted in a statement by Ivanishvili.
"Let us imagine hypothetically that Ivanishvili came to power. Indeed does he seriously believe that 2-3 years is sufficient for building a state? The possibility of achieving independence of the judiciary in such a short period? 2-3 years will not be enough to even form the government," said Tsintsadze.
