"Georgian Dream" opposes preferential voting on amendments

2013-03-20 14:47

The party "Georgian Dream", which is the majority of the Georgian Parliament, has rejected the idea of the president Mikheil Saakashvili and the parliamentary minority about the preferential voting on constitutional amendments, the Trend reports.


"The speaker can hold rating vote only if there is an alternative proposal. If there is no alternative proposal the preferential voting has no sense, and we state there will be only one voting that would be followed by the legal outcome", the representative of the parliamentary majority Zakaria Kutsnashvili said.

Earlier today we reported that the parliamentary opposition (which is now represented by the "United National Movement") was ready to support a constitutional amendment to limit the powers of the president of Georgia in the case of preferential voting. This was announced by Mikheil Saakashvili, who earlier late night held a consultation with the parliamentary minority in Kutaisi.

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.
