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.
