Constitutional Court of Georgia has not taken to consideration the claim regarding the powers of President Mikheil Saakashvili, the Rosbalt reported. According to the court, only popularly elected legislature body can adopt constitutional amendments.


The claim was filed by the representatives of the NGOs Irma Inashvili, Soso Manjavidze and David Tarkhan-Mouravi. They demanded the abolition of the "anti-constitutional articles", according to which the president's powers had been extended. In particular, they demanded the abolition of the 9th point of the 70th article, under which the presidential elections in Georgia should be held in October of the year of the expiration of the presidential term, as well as the 1st point of the same article, under which the Georgian president is elected for a term of five years.

Earlier we reported that Georgian NGOs, standing for early resignation of President Mikheil Saakashvili, have collected million signatures in support of this claim.

The representatives of NGOs, collecting signatures, have held a meeting outside the presidential residence in Tbilisi. They intended to hand the presidential administration a memorandum demanding Saakashvili's resignation, but none of the administration staff has come out to them.
