Georgia, Tbilisi, March 24 /Trend corresp. N.Kirtzkhalia/
The president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili does not give the green light to conducting an emergency session of parliament on March 25. At this session, the parliament should approve the final amendments to the Constitution on limiting the powers of the head of the state, as well as the law "On general courts", the adviser of the president Nino Kalandadze said on Sunday.
Saakashvili is against the bill "On general courts" presented by the Parliament. "The president agrees with the adoption of constitutional amendments on limiting his powers, however it is absolutely against the law "On general courts" in the version presented by the parliamentary majority," she said.
Kalandadze stressed that the adoption of the bill "On general courts" to have a negative impact on the relations between Georgia and the EU. "It will happen because the bill does not consider the recommendations of the Venetian commission and represents not a reform, but an anti-reform in the judicial sphere.Accordingly, the President can not support the agenda of the extraordinary session of the Parliament in the present form," the adviser declared.
The request on holding an extraordinary session of the parliament was addresed to the president by the Parliament speaker David Usupashvili.
According to the current legislation, if the president refuses to call an emergency session, the parliament has the right to appoint and hold such a meeting within 48 hours without a consent of the president.
