2012-12-29 12:21

Georgian parliament, which is operating in the city of Kutaisi starting from October this year, may return to Tbilisi. According to the parliament Speaker David Usupashvili, this may happen in the spring of 2013, the RIA Novosti reported.


"We assume that the spring session will be opened in Kutaisi, but in the late spring, the parliament is most likely to decide to return to Tbilisi", Usupashvili said at a news conference, adding that the draft amendments to the Constitution would allow the parliament returning to the old building in Tbilisi. According to him, for the deputies it's difficult to come to work from the capital to Kutaisi.

According to the amendments to the Constitution, adopted in July 2011 at the initiative of President Mikheil Saakashvili, after the 2012 elections, the Parliament started working in Kutaisi.

As recalled by the Caucasian Knot, the ruling coalition "Georgian Dream", which is majority in the Georgian parliament, officially started the process to amend the Constitution, stipulating the transfer of the parliament from Kutaisi back to Tbilisi, in early December. A relevant amendment was registered by the Bureau of the Parliament on December 3. The amendment was signed by more than 75 MPs.
