PACE co-rapporteurs welcome amendments to Georgian Constitution2013-03-27 11:44
PACE co-rapporteurs on Georgia Michael Jensen and Boris Tsilevich welcome the adoption by the Parliament of Georgia amendments to the Constitution on March 25. This was announced in a statement by Tsilevich and Jensen posted on the official website of the PACE, the IA Regnum reported.gt-en-newsitem-inside
According to the co-rapporteurs, the amendments were adopted on the basis of the agreement reached between the ruling majority and the parliamentary opposition.
Jensen and Tsilevich expect the same willingness to cooperate and compromise in the work over other important bills, such as the proposed reform of the Supreme Council of Justice.
Recall, Georgian Parliament adopted constitutional amendment limiting the power of the president on March 25. Saakashvili has almost lost the last lever of influence on the political process: he is no longer able to remove and appoint the members of the Cabinet.
On February 5 this year, 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.
