The anti-corruption agency will monitor the finances of political parties, electoral entities, and individuals with electoral goals.
The proposed bill, which provides for establishing the Georgian Anti-Corruption Bureau, features corresponding amendments. Current law gives the State Audit Service the authority described above.
The amendments require state officials to file asset declarations to the Anti-Corruption Bureau rather than the Public Service Bureau.
The revisions, according to Anri Okhanashvili, Chair of the Legal Affairs Committee, completely conform with the EC’s 12-point recommendations and the opinions and suggestions of non-governmental organizations.
