Parliament of Georgia has cut Saakashvili's powers

2013-03-22 11:24

On March 21, the Parliament of Georgia unanimously passed in the first reading the amendments to the Constitution, substantially limiting the powers of the president, the RBC reports.


Now the head of the state is deprived of the opportunity to dismiss the government without the consent of the Parliament.

Earlier, Mikheil Saakashvili stated his party "United National Movement", which is the minority in the Parliament, was ready to support constitutional amendment to limit the powers of the president of Georgia in the case of preferential voting.

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.
