The ruling Georgian Dream party has initiated the package of the legal changes in view of the capacity building of the anti-corruption activity, said the Legal Issues Committee Chair, Anri Okhanashvili, on Wednesday.
The legal changes serve for the fulfilment of paragraph 4 of the EU recommendations, paving Georgia’s way to get the EU candidate status, MP Okhanashvili explained.
“We establish the LEPL Anti-Corruption Bureau with a key function to facilitate countering corruption. The Bureau will oversee the fulfilment of the anti-corruption policy and the national anti-corruption strategy by coordinating the activity of the respective bodies, organizations and officials. The candidates for the Chief of the Bureau will be selected through the open and transparent competition,” he noted.
The package has been developed by the Working Group with the engagement of the representatives of the state institutions and civil society.
