What game is being played over Georgian elections, what’s going on here?

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.

What's going on there I wonder? High stakes brinksmanship – or something else?

Something else is going on here, Potekim  of democracy – or now that the business has been sold in Russia, it is time to divide up some of the profits and back to networks of patronage as before.
