New draft Constitution is being discussed in Georgia.gt-en-newsitem-inside
Mikheil Saakashvili, the president of the republic, keeps explaining the advantages of this draft - Novosti-Gruzia.
"Actually, we pass to a new, democratic and more complicated system of governing, with several centers of authority...And the Parliament is responsible for manning the majourity ", Saakashvili noted.
Saakashvili noted he respects the Constitution's restriction to occupy the president's post for only 2 terms.
"We have a common understanding that constitutional changes must not be adjusted to government's persons and the model must not be rebuilt," Saakashvili said at the meeting with parliamentary majourity.
In his view, the reinforcement of the role of the government according to the plan of the new Constitution will make the institute of the president more effective.
"Though this was advice on turning the president into the Queen of Great Britain, it's inadmissible for us. It must not be allowed. The presidential institute cannot be weakened. The head of the state, 20% territories of which are occupied, must be strong and effective," the Georgian leader said and presented the example of Moldova, where "all international norms and advice were considered, and in result the government has been paralyzed for practically a year."
In his view, now Georgia enters a new era and productively learns to combine European experience and own history of development.
