I don't want to be prime minister of Ukraine, Odesa Governor Saakashvili says

Head of the Odesa regional state administration says he has no desire to be the prime minister of Ukraine.

As reported by Censor.NET, he wrote this on his Facebook page, citing his recent Politico magazine interview, which implied that Saakashvili "wants to be the "standard-bearer for reforms" - and possibly the next prime minister."

"Just to avoid any speculations - I've never told this or any other journalist, that I'm willing to take the job of the Prime Minister of Ukraine," Saakashvili wrote.

"I have neither an offer, nor any desire to move to this position," he added.
