Georgia led by Saakashvili is currently fragmented; politically it represents nothing of itself.

Tarzan Kokoity, MP of the I - IV convocations of the Parliament of South Ossetia:
Parliamentary elections in Georgia, scheduled for October, are perceivedambiguously by the world community, including us.
