 "We'll press for early elections," - Sakvarelidze

The team of Odesa region governor Mikheil Saakashvili, who tendered resignation on Nov. 7, plans to actively engage in politics in Ukraine and press for early parliamentary elections.

Mikheil Saakashvili's ally Davit Sakvarelidze told LB.ua, Censor.NET reports.

"We are not going to insist on president's resignation. We will press for early [parliamentary - ed.] elections in order join in as a unified political force with a vision of radical but competent reforms. We'll introduce these people to society. Very soon, we'll announce it to everyone," he said, when asked what goals the Saakashvili's team set before itself.

Sakvarelidze believes the society still has a demand for reformers, with the current government having failed to live up to people's expectations.

"If Poroshenko's bloc and People's Front, which have lost public support, are allowed to freely earn and brazenly declare millions in cash, then, of course, election will take place only after three years, and these people will once again come to power. And voters will be bought for buckwheat, like cattle. We'll not let it happen and are set to fight against it.

"Early elections do not mean the victory of Party of Regions members. A field where Poroshenko's bloc and People's Front had to sow reforms is empty now. The only acceptable thing is a victory of a healthy unified political force realizing their unity is about ideology and not money. This is where we fundamentally differ from Poroshenko," the politician said.
