Whom do you consider as a person of the year?

Friday, December 24
"I think that the person of the year is our Patriarch, Ilia II, as he is the only person who really loves and does his best for the country. Herewith, he is a man, who thinks about the future of the young generation and enables them to see a right and healthy way of life."
Giorgi, Singer, 27

"I would name two people, first is Ilia II and the second is Paata Burchuladze. I appreciate them very much and believe in all steps and decisions made by them. I think it is a great thing when so many people love you and trust you."
Ketevan, Painter, 45

"The person of year is Mikheil Saakashvili, in my mind, as it was a very successful year for him and he has managed to undertake changes which were very profitable for him, for his political team and for his future political life."
Davit, Analyst, 32

"I would name His Holiness and Beatitude Ilia the Second as a person not only this particular year but all the previous years, since he is our moral leader and the symbol of Georgian traditions."
Mariam, Writer, 20

I think Georgia has a lot of important figures building and strengthening our statehood. I think Paata Burchuladze is among the Georgian patriots who is thinking of others through giving them peace, happiness and generosity with all his heart.
Nikoloz, Architect, 28

“The person of the year is definitely Misha. He is the most popular, most active, most frequently mentioned person in Georgia and for more than 6 years. Good job!”
Natia, lawyer, 25

“Person of the year is Nino Burjanadze, who has finally revealed who she really is. Her visits to Moscow and participation in all kinds of ridiculous ceremonies have shown that she has never been a patriot. What a shame that she used to be a top official in Georgia for years.”
Giorgi, cameraman, 27

“I can’t really name someone who has done something very significant this year. All that comes to my mind is politics. I don’t really want to name a politician in this nomination. However, I think the most talked about person in 2010 is Economy Minister Vera Kobalia. I think she really deserves this title for 2010.”
