Parliament of Georgia to consider draft amendments to Constitution

2013-03-19 11:26

Yesterday in the evening the Georgian Parliament started consideration of draft amendments to the Constitution of the country, the NEWSru reports.


The exact date of the vote is still unknown. The only result of the multi-round negotiations of supporters and opponents of the constitutional change is the fact that the Parliament will discuss the resolution, which implies a lightweight version of the amendments.

Thus, the majority has agreed not to activate the Constitutional provisions on redistribution of power from the president to the Prime Minister after the presidential election to be held in October this year.

The proposed amendments will give the president the right to dissolve parliament at any time, including during the six months after the parliamentary election, as well as six months before the presidential election, which is prohibited by the current version of the Constitution. However, the head of state will not be allowed to dissolve the government without the consent of the Parliament.

Recall, on February 5, representatives of the parliamentary majority urged all MPs to vote for limiting the power of president Mikheil Saakashvili.

"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.
