‘Saakashvili’s government is a semi-democratic regime’

Georgia’s government of Mikhail Saakashvili has not met the democratic promise of the Rose Revolution, but this does not make this regime a dictatorship.

That is according to Lincoln Mitchell, Assistant Professor in the Practice of International Politics at Columbia University, who joined RT live from New York.

During Georgia's Rose Revolution of 2003, Professor Mitchell was a key figure for the US-based National Democratic Institute in Tbilisi.
