Georgia, Tbilisi, Nov 28 /Trend N.Kirtzkhalia/
The Georgian government has continued to restrict the rights of the president and has proposed to appoint the chief prosecutor by the nomination of the justice minister. A change has been made in the legislation in this regard.
After the nomination of the chief prosecutor, he will be appointed by the PM with the approval of the parliament, Justice Minister Tea Tsulukiani said after the cabinet meeting.
"In addition, the minister won't be the chief prosecutor and, accordingly, will not perform the oversight function in accordance with the bill. And the president will not have this right as we move to a parliamentary republic according to his wish," Tsulukiani said.
The Georgian Dream will need a two-thirds majority to adopt the amendment in the parliament.
