Mikhail Saakashvili, Head of the Odessa Regional Administration, posted a message on his Facebook page denying allegations made by Politico publication that he has his eye on the position of Prime Minister currently being held by Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
“To prevent any speculations on the subject: in none of the interviews I gave have I ever mentioned wanting to be Prime Minister,” said Saakashvili.
Earlier on, Politico publication alleged that Sakashvili stated his willingness to replace Arseniy Yatsenyuk as Prime Minister in an interview with its journalists. This is not the first time Politico has made a mistake like this. In a similar incident, it misquoted Prime Minister Yatsenyuk who allegedly said he would fire Sergey Kvit, Minister of Eduction and Sciences.
