Politicians and experts discuss the possibility of returning of Bidzina Ivanishvili to active politics. Part of the constitutionalists believe that if the ex Prime Minister takes up the post of the President, it will ensure the stability of the political system.
The ruling party does not know anything about Ivanishvili"s plans, but they believe that the candidate of "Georgian Dream" will have no serious competitors in the presidential election.
The parliamentary opposition does not expect Ivanishvili to formally return to politics. They say that the former prime minister will not give up the status of an informal manager and will not take political responsibility. Active preparations for the presidential elections in the "National Movement" and "European Georgia" will start from spring.
Shalva Natelashvili does not rule out Bidzina Ivanishvili"s participation in the presidential election. Nino Burjanadze will be one of Bidzina Ivanishvili"s rivals in case he is a presidential candidate.
