TBILISI, October 29 (Itar-Tass) - Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili intends to leave his post on November 24. He stated this at a news conference here on Monday.
Five days ago Ivanishvili said he would leave premiership a week after the inauguration of the new Georgian president. “I believe the situation in the country after the presidential election of October 27 is quite stable,” he said. He believed the government would, possibly, not need his help any longer, and he would move to the area of civic society.
Ivanishvili stressed that his leaving politics did not mean withdrawing from Georgian public life. “I have been active in politics for two years, and, health permitting, I am going to be active in public life for twenty years,” he said.
