KIEV, December 2. /TASS/. Former governor of Ukraine’s Odessa region Mikheil Saakashvili has begun soliciting support for his recently-established political party, dubbed the New Forces Movement.
"The New Forces Movement aims at achieving an ambitious goal of creating a new political class in Ukraine. We want to kick the profiteers out of power, we believe it is possible, but we will start with ourselves," Saakashvili wrote in a statement published on his Facebook page.
"We want to forge honest relations with the state from the very beginning, so we have launched a fundraising campaign for the development of the New Forces Movement and implementation of our ambitious plans of turning Ukraine into a superpower," Saakashvili stated. At the same time, the former governor provided banking details for money transfers.
After stepping down from his post as Governor of the Odessa Region, Mikhail Saakashvili restarted his political career. On November 27, Saakashvili and several hundreds of his supporters held a rally in downtown Kiev under the slogan "The last winter of the current Rada". They demanded early parliamentary elections as well as "a new electoral law, a new Central Election Commission and the cancellation of immunity for parliament members."
Saakashvili has also voiced his program for reforming the country which is based on zero-tolerance for corruption, massive tax cuts, and reforming the judicial and healthcare systems.
