Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili speaks at a meeting of his supporters in Tbilisi, Georgia, Friday, April 19, 2013. About 10,000 supporters of embattled pro-Western President Mikhail Saakashvili have gathered for a rally testing their strength ahead of October's presidential vote. Saakashvili's United National Movement lost October's parliamentary election to the Georgian Dream bloc led by Russia-friendly billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili, who became prime minister. Saakashvili's authority has been further weakened by a constitutional reform that has shifted powers from the presidency to Parliament and the prime minister. (AP Photo/Shakh Aivazov)
