TBILISI, October 1 (Itar-Tass) — Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili and his wife Sandra Roelofs, national of the Netherlands and Georgia, cast their ballots in the parliamentary election at 9:05. Together with their junior son, seven-year-old Nikoloz, they came to polling station 19 in Tbilisi.
After the voting, Saakashvili told reporters that Monday “is an epoch-making day for Georgia”. “Today the fate of Georgia’s statehood is decided,” he stressed. Saakashvili is “absolutely confident that at all crucial moments the Georgian people have always made the correct choice”.
“I am confident as never before about the wisdom of multi-ethnic population of Georgia, their far-sightedness and courage. Today the country is making the choice that will influence the lives of not only today’s generation, but also of many generations to come, and not only for the next four years, but for decades to come,” the Georgian leader said.
He expressed confidence that the voter turnout will be high on Monday, and the electors will demonstrate “a high level of civic awareness”.
“I don’t speak about the victory of parties, I say that the Georgian people will win as it was in the past and as it must be at crucial moments of our history,” the president stressed.
