The MPs are "unraveling" Saakashvili's statement
Some opposition leaders perceived the statement by the head of the Georgian state Mikhail Saakashvili about the imminent moving of the Parliament of Georgia in Kutaisi from the capital in May 2012 as a hint of early parliamentary elections. In particular, according to "Georgia-News", opposition MP of the faction "Unity for Justice" Dmitri Lortkipanidze has also perceived a hint in Saakashvili's statement.
"After the Rose Revolution Georgian Constitution has been changed 22 times, there were also made changes in the new draft two times. I do not understand the last speech of the president. The President is a lawyer, I do not think he made a mistake and we are talking about early elections, since conducting the first session of parliament on May 26 is contrary to the Constitution", said Lortkipanidze.
He explained that under the 48th prima article of the Constitution Georgia, the Parliament will move to Kutaisi after the Central Election Commission will publish the final report on the results of next parliamentary elections (October 2012), .
In response, the First Vice-Speaker Mikhail Machavariani noted that the President was referring to the completion of construction of building of the parliament and conducting the first meeting in this building.
