Georgian PM's party demands president convenes Security Council
Georgia, Tbilisi, June 3 / Trend N.Kirtskhalia /
Leader of the parliamentary faction of the Prime Minister of Georgia, 'Georgian Dream - Democratic Georgia' Zakaria Kutsnashvili demanded from the President Mikheil Saakashvili that he convenes a meeting of the National Security Council, Kutsnashvili said at a briefing. According to him, after coming to power, 'Georgian Dream' has repeatedly addressed such a request to the President.
"This requirement is stipulated for a number of reasons. First it is the country's security which is within the competence of that body. Secondly regarding foreign visits of the president, the public is not informed for what purpose, which programme and by which means and with what results these visits are completed," Kutsnashvili said.
According to the parliamentarian, such a request was addressed to the president by the majority two weeks ago, but he reacted only after the line of occupation was moved.
Kutsnashvili said that the convocation of the Security Council is the prerogative of only the President of Georgia, but not a single meeting has been held for the last seven months.
