 Anyone with more than one term in parliament and representatives of big business will be banned from new party, - Saakashvili

Former Odesa governor Mikheil Saakashvili has announced the creation of a new political force. According to him, the move is aimed at holding early parliamentary elections and changing Ukraine's political elite.

As reported by Censor.NET, he said it at a press conference in Kyiv.

"I want to announce that we are going to create a new political force. A platform for new forces. Our goal is to replace the existing so-called political elite actually consisting of profiteers and scum who control the parliament, the Cabinet and all kinds of power in Ukraine . Our goal is holding early parliamentary elections as quickly as possible," Saakashvili said.

According to him, the new party will be closed for anyone who has worked more than one term in the parliament.

"Whoever it may be. [We'll take - ed.] no one having worked more than two or three years as executive branch official. Not a single representative of big business will get onto our list," the politician remarked.

"We will not let business mix with politics, we will not let business into the Verkhovna Rada. They have nothing to do there. The era of profiteers in the Verkhovna Rada must end. The current Verkhovna Rada is crammed with profiteers who bought seats to continue robbing the people of Ukraine. They must be driven out by people's will, peaceful but very strong," Saakashvili stated.

"As soon as the people of Ukraine are ready to tell this government - "Get out!" - it will. This government, in contrast to all the previous ones, has no political support at all, no regional support. Their speakers are pathetic... Who are Poroshenko's main speakers?! Honcharenko?! A petty thief who used to be the chief separatist in Odesa," Saakashvili said.
