Conservative party of Georgia presented own constitutional reform draft2009-06-25 16:09
Georgian non-parliamentary opposition, which refuses to participate in the work of the Constitutional Commission established upon the initiative of the President, today published its draft of the Constitution reform. The draft was worked out by the Conservative party and presented by its Secretary General, Kakha Kukava.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"We support the initiative of a number of opposition parties on alternative constitutional process and believe that all the political range and all the civil society must participate in it, and on the basis of the consensus to work out the project of the future political structure of the country", Kukava said.
The variant they propose is based on the principles of the constitutional reform conducted by Gamsakhurdia's government in 1991. Its main points are: direct elections of regions' governors, cities' mayors, heads of regional administrations, introduction of the bicameral parliament, opposition's control over activities of independent institutions (Public Defender, Chamber of Control etc). Besides, according to the Conservatives' variant, the President will be only the head of the state, and the executive power will belong to the government, formed by the parliament and responsible to it.
