Katsitadze: We don't need referendum in order to increase the number of deputies
According to one of the leaders of the "New Rights" Mamuka Katsitadze, increasing the number of deputies of the Georgian Parliament of Georgia from 150 to 190 people does not require a referendum. He expressed this opinion in an interview to the "GHN".
"According to the referendum, which took place in 2003, we should note a few facts. In particular, we should recall the time of referendum - November 2, 2003. That day, there were still other issues, some of which were found to be invalid, and another - were not. When one ballot is a fake, and second is true, all of this gives rise to suspicions ... also, when I was a deputy, and when the number of deputies of Parliament was reduced, it was not done on the basis of the reforms, that was legislative changes"- said Katsitadze.
Recall one of the items of the recent agreement between the Georgian authorities and opposition on the electoral environment in the country was to increase the Georgian parliamentarians from the current 150 to 190.
