2009-07-17 12:43

The political debates in Georgian parliament planned for July 17 are postponed until Monday on President Mikheil Saakashvili's request.


It was stated by Chairman of Georgian Parliament David Bakradze reminding of the decision taken at today's extraordinary session to meet the president's request and postpone the debates to July 20, News Georgia reports.

"I had a talk with President of Georgia after the important decision on political debates was taken in parliament and it was agreed to give the floor to the president. Considering that all MPs and political parties are in favor of the president's participation in debates, the president asked to give him a few days to be better prepared to appear in parliament and have all necessary consultations. The president's request is to organize debates on Monday instead of Friday, - Speaker David Bakradze said.

"I believe this will give both political parties and factions an opportunity to be better prepared for the new reality the president's participation in debates will create", - the chairman of the parliament stated.

Vice Speaker Levan Vepkhadze representing parliamentary minority remarked that parliamentary opposition "did not mind" giving the president time to get prepared for the debates.

"I think it is another challenge, this is how the president is emphasizing the parliament's serious attitude to them and asks for more time to be prepared well, - he stated.

As Georgia Times reported earlier Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili agreed to take part in political debates scheduled for July 17 in Georgian parliament urged by the Christian Democratic opposition faction.
