SUKHUMI, April 3 (Itar-Tass) —— Life will improve in Abkhazia and its authorities will not allow any economic, social or other collapse, Abkhaz President Alexander Ankvab told the new parliament on Tuesday.
“Parliamentarianism in Abkhazia is very young but very busy. We open a new page today,” he said. “The newly elected deputies will serve their people with merit.”
Ankvab agreed with the opinion of deputy Zaur Mikvabia that Abkhazia had lots of problems to solve but said they should not be pessimistic. The president said he knew about problems of Abkhazia and did not need opinion polls to learn about them.
“If your lawmaking, public and other activity is synchronized with our work, we will achieve much better results. The modern Abkhazia is very democratic no matter what our foes may think. And it happened so that we have more than enough foes and few friends. It is our task to make new friends. I am positive that the four parliament vice-speakers will be very busy. They must travel and meet with people. The role of parliamentarians is huge,” he said.
The republic enjoys serious support of Russia, Ankvab said.
The new parliament elected its speaker, Valery Bganba, and four vice-speakers on Tuesday.
