2013-02-08 12:15

The Parliament of Georgia has refused to listen to the annual report of president Mikheil Saakashvili, the Interfax reported. Parliament Speaker David Usupashvili explained this decision by saying that the parliamentary opposition had not accepted the constitutional amendments to limit presidential powers.


The amendments to the constitution of Georgia were submitted by the deputies from the coalition "Georgian Dream". In particular, the proposed amendments allow the Parliament assembling in the capital of Georgia Tbilisi, not just in Kutaisi as now. The amendments aslo imply deprivation the president of the right to dissolve the government without the consent of Parliament.

Opposition leader David Bakradze stated that he regretted the refusal to listen to the president, since Saakashvili was ready to speak in Parliament and take part in the debate, the Hvylya reported.

Recall, the next presidential election is scheduled for October 2013. After the election, it is planned to cut presidential powers.
