"Georgian Dream" calls on deputies to restrict president's authority

2013-02-05 11:51

The coalition "Georgian Dream" intends to carry out a constitutional reform. On February 5, representatives of the parliamentary majority urged all MPs to vote for limiting the power of President Mikheil Saakashvili, the IA "MIR" reported.


"This is a historic moment, when all the members of parliament have to make a choice - are they for the people and its representation in the parliament or for the person of Mikhail Saakashvili. Each deputy must answer before the country, their children and their future, what country they're building: a free and democratic or dictatorship", said the leader of the parliamentary majority, David Saganelidze.

Recall, previously we reported that deputies of the coalition "Georgian Dream" took the initiative to change the form of the election of the president through replacing a direct vote with parliamentary vote.

Under the proposed amendments that will come into force later, main powers are being redistributed between the strong Prime Minister and relatively weak but retaining levers of power president.

Avtandil Demetrashvili, the author of the amendment to the Constitution of Georgia, under which after the election of a new president in October this year, Georgia must become the parliamentary-presidential republic, believes that the rejection of nation-wide presidential elections violates the checks and balances system necessary for democracy.
