The leader of the political party «The movement of new forces», ex-Governor of Odessa Region and former President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili considers necessary holding of off-year elections in Ukraine.
According to politician, the necessity of early elections is being substantiated with extremely low rates of the national economic growth which endangers territorial integrity of Ukraine.
«Existing system must be totally demolished by Ukrainians. It is of a great importance to reload the system during nearest few months. Unlike other countries, Ukraine cannot demonstrate economical growth in 1-2% per year. It is obvious either we see redoubling standards of living in every 6 years reflected in two-digit rates of economical growth or the state will fall apart. Today Ukraine got 3 prior issues to solve: problem of War in East, economical miracle and reload of state system», — Mikheil Saakashvili said.
The former President of Georgia considers off-year elections to be a single way for system reloading. Mikheil Saakashvili supposes that recent actions made by President Poroshenko demonstrate his preparation to elections despite statements concerning impossibility of such a process.
«We have to realize that in case of President all his Statements should be estimated mirror-wise. Nowadays he started installation of promotion tents, trainings for activists and fund-raising. In fact he is doing the monopolization of media. What for? It is obvious he is preparing to something», — he said.
