Georgia's Western-leaning president proposed Wednesday drafting a new Constitution that would conform to European democratic standards
Georgia's Western-leaning president proposed Wednesday drafting a new Constitution that would conform to European democratic standards. "I believe that we, along with the opposition, should consider drafting a new Constitution that would be adjusted to modern European democracy," Mikheil Saakashvili said. "The current Constitution has a lot of drawbacks that need to be removed." Signing amendments to the Constitution that allow for simultaneous parliamentary and presidential elections in the South Caucasus state next fall, Saakashvili said that drafting a new Constitution would take several years and require consensus between the authorities and the opposition. He said he planned to step up cooperation with the opposition, which voted against the amendments, arguing that Saakashvili's campaign would help the ruling party win a majority in parliament. Saakashvili said a new body, an enlarged national security council, would be set up to comprise all lawmakers willing to contribute to the debate on the country's foreign policies.
