Saakashvili calls for respect of the choice of majority
Mikheil Saakashvili calls for respect of the choice of the majority. Outgoing president made a statement after the exit-poll results showed that the candidate of the ruling party Georgian Dream Giorgi Margvelashvili won the elections. President said the position of the majority must be respected.
`Georgia has elected a new president and I want to express my gratitude to each voter, who participated in these polls, because each election, regardless of their results, serves to the development of democracy in a country and democracy is the main point, on which our political system is based on and for which we are so proud.
I`d like to address that part of Georgian society, which does not like this result of the polls -- I understand you very well but don`t give up, each step back is temporary. Based on the traditions, which we shaped during past ten years and which can no longer be uprooted, I believe that Georgia has a very bright future. We`ll overcome all difficulties! We`ll compensate the wasted time and go ahead for a better future,` Mikheil Saakashvili said.
