‘National Movement’ is not going to participate in the meeting about constitutional amendments planned by the ‘Georgian Dream’ for July 1.
As a member of the Parliament from ‘National Movement’ Tina Bokuchava said, the party is ready to take part in consideration over constitutional amendments within Constitutional Commission format, but, it is not going to participate in the dialogue, which is hosted by the political group, which “covers up hangman Giorgi Gakharia”.
“We will definitely do everything to accomplish this great achievement. We will participate within the Constitutional Commission format, in order to ensure that this great achievement is concluded and the next election in our country is carried out with the full proportional system. However, prior to establishment of this commission, ‘National Movement’ is not going to participate in the dialogue, which is hosted by the political group, which “covers up hangman Giorgi Gakharia”, – Tina Bokuchava said.
The presentation of the constitutional initiative of the ruling Georgian Dream-Democratic Georgia – 2020 Proportional Elections – will be held on July 1. The statement of Georgian Dream Party says that the ruling team invites representatives of all political parties, Central Election Commission (CEC), Diplomatic Corps accredited in Georgia and international and non-governmental organizations to the presentation. The presentation will take place at the Sheraton Metechi Palace Hotel at 14:00.
Based on the decision of the leadership of the ruling Georgian Dream-Democratic Georgia Party, the 2020 parliamentary elections in Georgia will be held based on a proportional electoral system with a zero-percent threshold.
Conduct of proportional elections in 2020 was one of the main demands of the protest ongoing at Rustaveli Avenue in front of the parliament building in Tbilisi.
