Extraordinary session of parliament ongoing


An extraordinary session of the Georgian parliament is ongoing. Lawmakers are discussing the project of Constitutional changes with the third hearing. The sitting, despite of rejection of president, began at 14:00. The voting procedure is expected to start in 15 minutes. 

The parliamentary majority claims that terms of discussions are adhered to, the conclusion of Venice Commission is publicized and the new constitution will be approved after making editorial corrections. 

The parliamentary opposition criticizes the majority for taking unilateral decisions. Minority MPs claim that the constitution will not have political legitimacy. MPs of National Movement and European Georgia left the parliament session hall in protest.
