Georgian PM fired

Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili has dismissed Prime Minister Lado Gurgenidze, who had been in office less than a year.

According to the BBC, Saakashvili “did not say why the decision was made.”

Georgia has a president-parliamentary system, so there is no question that the PM is a subordinate of the president. The PM also must maintain the confidence of a majority in parliament.

Thanks to Boravy, one of my students, for the tip.
