Georgia, Tbilisi, Sept. 5 /Trend, N. Kirtzkhalia/
The President of Georgia will no longer have the right to declare state of war in the country.
Changes are being made in the 'Law on the State of War', according to which declaration of the state of war goes into government's competence.
This change is being discussed by the Georgian parliament.
On Thursday, the Georgian Parliament approved changes in over 20 laws in the first reading. The changes are related to the new constitutional rules, which will come into the force after election of new president.
According to these changes, a number of presidential powers have been transferred to different structures of government.
The new constitutional rules also stipulate changes of technical character in certain laws.
For guaranteeing conformity of the new Constitution, it is necessary to make changes to nearly 160 laws. The parliament is considering them in an accelerated mode.
