Parliament of Abkhazia summoned for an extraordinary sitting

2009-08-06 13:28

Today MPs of Abkhazia gather on extraordinary sitting on demand of the opposition.


The amendments to the legislation on citizenship the Parliament endorsed on July 31st caused discord and criticism from the side of the opposition - ITAR TASS.

The amendments recognized residents of Gali region [mainly ethnic Georgians] as citizens of Abkhazia, without renunciation of their Georgian citizenship.

On August 5th a rally in the centre of Sokhumi was staged. Up to 300 protesters, including ex Vice President Raul Khajimba called the endorsement of that law a "crime against statehood".

According to tentative information, MPs are ready to recall the law on endorsement of the aforesaid amendments.

Sergey Bagapsh, the leader of Abkhazia, established a commission to solve that problem. The commission will be headed by Natella Akaba, the Secretary of the Public Chamber; she musrt present her recommendations before August 10th 2009.
