Georgia, Tbilisi, Oct. 25 / Trend N. Kirtzkhalia /
The government of the Georgian Dream coalition headed by candidate for Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili plans to implement large scale reforms in all strategic directions.
While representing a government programme called 'For a strong, democratic, united Georgia', Bidzina Ivanishvili made this statement at the Georgian Parliament on Thursday.
"There is a procedure of presenting the government programme at the Georgian Parliament and approving its composition.
"According to the programme most of the political groups of the new ruling coalition prefer parliament managing within the planned constitutional reform," he said. "However a final decision on the constitutional arrangement will be made on the basis of a broad civil consent."
"According to the constitution there will be such a governing model which on the one hand will ensure the stability of the government and on the other will provide the political opposition with real levers for a competent and timely control over the government's activity," Ivanishvili said.
The new government intends to ensure that local bodies with representative bodies are elected by direct elections, Bidzina Ivanishvili said at the Georgian Parliament, while representing a government programme called 'For strong, democratic, united Georgia'.
Ivanishvili added that the Tbilisi City Assembly (Sakrebulo), mayors and heads of local administrations will be elected.
"According to the programme, the villages included in the self-governing community, will have the elected heads of local administrations rather than be appointed," he said. "Self-governing bodies will have exclusive rights. Property and funds will be transferred to them."
Special bureaus will be established under all local offices. The land and property will be transferred to them. Local heads will be elected in villages.
Earlier the leader of the Georgian Dream coalition which won the recent parliamentary elections, Bidzina Ivanishvili proposed candidates for ministers in the new Georgian government.
