Authorities and opposition to discuss formation of Constitutional Commission

2009-05-29 13:06

Today another meeting of representatives of authorities and opposition aimed to decide the order of formation [number and members] of the state commission on constitutional reform.


"We expect reaction from the side of the non-parliamentary opposition. We wait and hope they will join the process and the discussion of the chairman candidates", previously said David Bakradze, the Speaker of the Georgian Parliament - Novosti-Gruzia.

The proposal to establish the Constitutional Commission was voiced by President Mikheil Saakashvili at the meeting with non-parliamentary opposition on May 11.

According to tentative data, the representatives of the parliamentary opposition in the commission will be: Georgi Targamadze, the leader of the Christian Democratic party; Giya Tortladze, the head of Strong Georgia fraction; Paata Davitaya, the Vice-Speaker of the Parliament; and Guram Chakhvadze, the representative of the Naional-Democtratic party in the Parliament.

Last Friday the parliamentary opposition proposed Avtandil Demetrashvili, the ex-chairman of the Constitutional Court of Georgia, as a Commission chairman candidate.

The Commission will presumably include 50-60 people, 15 of them - representatives of Demetrashvili's team. Representatives of international organizations and foreign experts will also participate in the work of the Constitutional Commission.
