Georgian Parliament completes constitutional reform

The reform of the Constitution of Georgia has culminated in the adoption of amendments thereto. They were supported by 115 MPs out of 150, that is, the parliamentary majority.

The amendments contain the provisions on which the Venice Commission had insisted.

Georgia has received its "basic law based on the best European traditions of parliamentary democracy," said Irakliy Kobakhidze, the Speaker.

"By this reform, the authoritarian Constitution was replaced by a democratic one," the press service of the Parliament quotes him as saying.

According to the Speaker, the new version significantly improves the protection of human rights, the independence of the judiciary of local self-government, and also provides for better regulation of the spheres of defence and security.
