Ruling party response to Ivanishvili's call for Misha to veto the constitutional amendment which would allow non-citizens of Georgia to become President (it does sound a little crazy, like, so you can see where he's coming from, but he says he won't use that amendment - he won't run unless he is a citizen of Georgia, and Misha isn't likely to veto it.
