Eka Beselia – Our partners are disappointed with draft-bill about appointment of judges

The statements of the US and EU ambassadors were the clearest messages that our US and EU partners are disappointed – MP Eka Beselia told reporters.

Beselia responded to the statement of US ambassador Ross Wilson on the draft bill relating to the appointment of judges for Supreme Court of Georgia.  According to Beselia, the majority cannot “easily sell” its position that the recommendations of the Venice Commission have been reflected in the draft bill.

“The friends and partners of our country are disappointed by the draft law and the method of its adoption. The US and EU ambassadors’ statements were clear messages that our European and American partners, as well as our local professional circles and organizations, are frustrated by the reform of justice. The US Ambassador’s statement was very sharp yesterday. He said he was disappointed that the majority of the parliament did not share the jointly developed recommendations. They cannot easily sell their false statements that the recommendations have been reflected in the bill. It is very embarrassing that the ruling party makes such false and misleading statements,” Beselia said.
