In this image taken Monday, Oct.1, 2012, Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili speaks to media during the parliamentary elections at a polling station in Tbilisi, Georgia. Mikhail Saakashvili on Tuesday Oct. 2, 2012 has conceded defeat in the parliamentary election and says the opposition now has the right to form a government. Speaking Tuesday on television, he said: "It's clear from the preliminary results that the opposition has the lead and it should form the government. And I as president should help them with this." Early results show an opposition coalition led by billionaire businessman Bidzina Ivanishvili with what appears to be an insurmountable lead as voters turned away from Saakashvili and the party that has been in power for almost nine years.
