The question of the restoration of the monarchy in Georgia has been discussed since the late USSR. That is, about it say almost 30 years. One of the earliest political parties in Georgia was the Conservative Monarch Party, its leader was Timur Zhorzholiani, the party published the newspaper Vatan (Victory). Thus, in Georgia there has long been a part of the population that supports this idea.
But, like in every country that once was monarchical, but became a republic, Georgian monarchists are a stable minority. They exist, but in politics they do not play a serious role. A monarchist in parliament is more an exception than a rule for a state with a republican system. Any republican regime, from the socialist to the conservative, does everything to prevent monarchists from entering parliament and official politics. This is what happens in Georgia: for example, the leader of the Conservative Monarchist Party of Georgia, Mr. Zhorzholiani, was arrested and long time in prison.
In the republican states, monarchists are allowed only "street politics," but they are always closed to official politics. Therefore, the only opportunity for the restoration of the monarchy in the republican state is an initiative "from above" from the president, the government and the parliament, and not from below, or from monarchist parties.
In this situation, there is always complexity. For the president of the republic, who speaks about the restoration of the monarchy, this conversation is needed only to preserve political influence after the end of the presidential term. The president wants to become a regent, to have the dictator's authority for the "transitional period". Thus, the president thinks not so much about the legitimate authority for the King or the Tsar, how much about prolonging his power is not quite legal way. Monarchy in perspective - of course, it's good, but ... But everyone understands why this is done. As a result, the excitement of the opposition and the anti-monarchist campaign. More harm than good. Apart from Spain and Cambodia, I do not remember any example of the successful restoration of the monarchy. I think that all this will remain in Georgia only as an empty conversation. Unfortunately...
