Georgia President Seeks Weekly Meetings With Billionaire Premier

Feb. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili said he’d like to schedule weekly meetings with Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili in a bid to calm tense relations between the two.

“The situation isn’t good right now,” Saakashvili told reporters today in Tbilisi. “The prime minister and president should meet once a week. This is what the situation in the country needs.”

Tension is rising between the U.S.-backed president and Ivanishvili, who scored an upset win in October parliamentary elections. Saakashvili called Feb. 8 for the two sides to work together after he was forced to change the venue of his final annual address because of protests against his opposition to proposed constitutional changes. His last term ends in October.
