Unemployment major election issue

Unemployment is clearly the major issue in Georgia nowadays and therefore all the political parties participating in the elections are making job creation part of their campaign. This is a major plank of the election platform of all candidates.

Economic analyst Soso Archuadze thinks that a person with a stable income, either through a salary or private business, would find the arguments of politicians that they can provide several thousand jobs in the twinkle of an eye ridiculous. "There are no revolutionary changes in economics, it is based on logical, consistent realities. One can achieve a target only through fulfilling distinctly planned programmes," thinks Archuadze.

The dire situation of the population of Georgia creates very fertile ground for making populistic promises and arousing expectations and hopes. Both Government and opposition manipulate people in such a way quite mercilessly.
