Saakashvili has agreed to restriction of his rights2013-03-20 12:47
Parliamentary opposition (which is now represented by the "United National Movement") is ready to support a constitutional amendment to limit the powers of the president of Georgia in the case of preferential voting, the Trend reports. This was announced by Mikheil Saakashvili, who earlier late night held a consultation with the parliamentary minority in Kutaisi.gt-en-newsitem-inside
According to the president, the Parliament should hold the rating voting to determine how many votes the parliamentary majority is lacking to make a decision in 100 votes. Under the law, the constitutional amendments can be adopted by 2/3 out of 150 people.
Saakashvili said that the lacking votes would be provided by the minority. "According to my information, for a constitutional majority they are lacking 6 or 7 votes, and we are ready to provide it to them", he said.
Recall, on March 18, the Georgian Parliament started consideration of draft amendments to the Constitution of the country.
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.
