TBILISI, October 24 (Itar-Tass) — Georgian businessman Bidzina Ivanishvili, who is poised to become the prime minister, has said he plans to leave politics in eighteen months, but has no intention to leave the country.
“Twelve months ago I said I plan to stay in politics from two to three years,” he said at a meeting with members of the parliamentary minority in Kutaisi on Wednesday.
“I’ve already been in politics for twelve months – I mean my being in opposition. Now after the victory at the parliamentary elections I can say that in eighteen months I plan to leave the position of prime minister and leave politics, but I will stay in the country,” Ivanishvili said.
He expressed confidence that within eighteen months he “will train such a team that will fulfil all pledges given to people.”
“After my departure from politics I plan to remain an active member of the society and together with the civil sector to control the authorities,” Ivanishvili said.
