2013-03-25 12:39

On Friday, March 22, the Parliament of Georgia adopted in the second reading amendments to the Constitution to limit the president's right to appoint the cabinet alone in case of dissolution of the Parliament, the News-Georgia reported.


123 deputies have unanimously voted for the changes to the Constitution. In total, the Georgian Parliament consists of 150 deputies, but at the moment three seats are vacant.

Voting in the third and the final reading to adopt amendments to the Constitution is scheduled for this week.

Recall, 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.

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.
