President Saakashvili said on May 26 that he will issue a special
decree on granting dual citizenship to those Georgians, who currently
live abroad.

“Under the Constitution of Georgia, I have the right to grant dual
citizenship. So, each Georgian, who currently lives abroad, will have
a possibility to receive dual citizenship,” President Saakashvili
said at a military parade on May 26.

He said, the authorities should implement relevant measures to ensure
that Georgian emigres return to their native country.
