Tsintsadze: Only Appearance Of New Faces Might Be Beneficial For Development Of Georgia

Tbilisi. August 30 (Prime-News) – Soso Tsintsadze, political scientist, deems that only appearance of new, professional faces will be beneficial for further development of Georgia.

Soso Tsintsadze evaluated the attitude of the Georgian government towards the motto “membership of one team”, carried out on the account of professionalism, as a wrong principle.

Tsintsadze told Prime-News that the permanent reign of revolution in Georgia might have only negative influence. “The government of Georgia might attract new, professional figures from intelligence and science,” emphasized Tsintsadze.

“I think staff reshuffle was carried out a little bit later. The government of Georgia really required cleansing and revision, but the motto “membership of one team” turned out to be more influential. Everybody knew from the very beginning that Lado Chipashvili was a bad minister, but he was a “team member”,” admitted Tsintsadze.

According to the viewpoint of political scientist, Lado Chipashvili is “honorably exiled” at the moment, but four years later he will end up his career with a collapse.

Tsintsadze deems that it is possible to make right conclusions about this or that minister after three months from his/her appointment. “Consequently government is obliged to carry out permanent staff rotation,” remarked the political scientists.

“I think the first person to be replaced in the government of Georgia is Zurab Noghaideli. Only if Zurab Noghaideli quits his post, I will believe that positive changes are expected in Georgia,” said he.

Tsintsadze named Giorgi Gabashvili, Minister of Culture, Monument Protection and Sport among the “bad ministers”.

Political scientist considers that healthcare and social spheres must be separated, as well as MIA and security systems. “Complicated social background indicates that the unification of these spheres are not righteous,” declared Tsintsadze.
