Georgian parliamentary chief discusses constitutional amendments
Last Updated(Beijing Time):2010-09-10 11:23

The Georgian parliamentary chief on Thursday promised to include some opposition language in the proposed draft constitution of the country.

"Our oppositional colleagues expressed some very grounded remarks," said parliament chairman Davit Bakradze. "They will presumably be included in the new draft. These remarks will be presented at the summarizing meeting of the (constitution) commission which will decide whether to include them in the new draft or not."

Bakradze spoke after meeting leaders from the oppositions parties Industry Will Save Georgia and New Rights.

"We talked about organic law as well as tax and labor codes," said New Rights leader Davit Gamkrelidze. "Relations between the institutions will not be improved as per the new constitution draft. It is the main drawback and reason of our protest."

The parliamentary chairman is scheduled to meet other opposition leaders to discuss the constitutional amendments.

Ten of the country's opposition parties in July called on authorities not to hurry to adopt the constitutional amendments, arguing that they should be passed by the parliament that will be elected in 2012.

The call was rejected by the ruling party -- United National Movement.

The Georgian parliament will debate the constitutional amendments in its autumn session that began on Tuesday.
