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.
