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 Mikheil 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.
