The State of Georgia previously part of the former Soviet Union held Parliamentary election on October 1, 2012 and,

The incumbent President Mikheil Saakashvili headed United National Movement lost to the opposition, the Georgian Dream coalition led by billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvilli altering the political situation in the country that was engaged in war with Russia over South Ossetia and Abkhazia separation from Georgia.

President Saakashvili, a strong western ally as well as proxy leadership for the United States is at the end of Presidential term and the nation undergoing constitutional changes to the political system with the newly elected political party leadership as Prime Minister Ivanishvili aimed at promoting bilateral ties with the neighbor Russia and others against predecessor trend.

Having served the term limit i.e. two successive terms, President Saakashvili maintained close relations with United States, EU and Israel providing NATO access to contain Russian political influence in the ex-Soviet bloc and adjacent region.

Even though the electoral outcome is a major setback for the west, the Georgian electorate active participation post election in monitoring government function with appropriate checks and balances could prevent France scenario following globalists favored former President Nicolas Sarkozy departure.

The Presidential election is scheduled for October 2013 with precedence set in the recent poll.

Georgian election result is the voter dissatisfaction with status quo facilitating the required transformation considering the incumbency abuse of power, economic mismanagement and overwhelming external interference in domestic affairs undermining sovereignty.

The incoming administration could be facing similar trials to demonstrate commitment and faltering could be a huge risk considering the Presidential election in 2013 with possible voter backlash in local and national elections in the immediate future.

Congratulations! To Georgian electorate and the winner Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili as well as members of Georgian Dream Coalition on the election victory with an opportunity to realize national dreams benefitting all.

Peace to all!

Thank you.
