Tbilisi, Georgia, Nov. 4
By Nana Kirtzkhalia
The Georgian government introduced a draft law "On the rules of planning and coordinating the national security policy" to the country's parliament.
The Georgian parliament's press service told Trend Nov. 4 that under the draft law, the Security and Crisis Management Council, headed by the country's prime minister, will coordinate the national security policy.
The draft law stipulates that the council will plan and coordinate the national security policy. Currently, these issues are under the responsibility of the president as the chief of the executive power and the security council of Georgia.
"The main essence of the draft law is to establish a regulatory framework under which the national security policy will be planned," Georgian government's parliamentary secretary, Shalva Tadumadze said.
He said this framework will consider all threats to the national security, adding that the National Security and Crisis Management Council will coordinate and plan this policy.
"Before this, the government has not been endowed with such powers," Tadumadze said.
