That is what Saakashvili said in an interview with the Politico publication of Belgium.
“I would like to be part of major changes and reforms. I can do that in any capacity,” said Saakashvili when asked if he harbors any ambition of becoming Prime Minister.
“This is not the kind of job I’ve been dreaming about. I refused a party membership which entitled me to run for Parliament, nor do I want to have anything to do with oligarchs. I want to spearhead the reform movement,” said Saakashvili.
Saakashvili criticized Yatsenyuk for his refusal to run in local elections.
“This is not normal for a Prime Minister’s party not to run in local elections. Unless you want to test your popularity with people, I don’t think you have the right to embark on a reform path,” Said Saakashvili.
In an interview with a US publication, Arseniy Yatsenyuk bluntly responded to Saakashvili’s criticism by reproaching him of failure to put reforms in place in Georgia.
In his turn, Saakashvili reminded Yatsenyuk of his successes as President of Georgia and likened them to Yatsenyuk’s own 'achievements'. He also referred to the Prime Minister’s statements as ‘a punch below the belt’, accusing him of being corrupt and unable to implement reforms in Ukraine.
