On May 2, during the discussion of amendments to the law "On occupied territories" Parliament of Georgia failed to conduct a vote on the issue, the reported. Adoption of amendments was disrupted by the deputies from the "United National Movement" who resorted to procedural tricks for this purpose.


Representatives of the National Movement, who came to the meeting room, were not registered. In connection with this it was not possible to hold the meeting due to lack of quorum.
