08 June 2011 [17:35] - TODAY.AZ
Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili believes democracy is more than a few hundred people making a bedlam .

" Democracy is not when a few hundred people decide to move onto the streets to create a bedlam and disorder to regain their position . They think that the rest of the people are stupid and everything belongs to them ," Saakashvili said at a Youth Patriotic Camp in Anaklia .

He said that his idea of democracy is the preservation of dignity and achievement of justice .

" Democracy is your work , starting from school and ending with a patriotic camp , maintaining your dignity , manifesting your views , searching for a set of people like you , their formation in the mould , achievement of justice, and a community’s belief in it for others to believe - that this is real democracy ," he said .

Saakashvili expressed his confidence that the new generation in Georgia will be just that .
