Irakli Kobakhidze: new edition of the Constitution of Georgia will effectively prevent formation autocratic regime

The number of challenges and problems were related to the previous editions of the Constitutions, allowing the Governments forming the autocratic regime. The new edition prevents formation of autocracy”, - the Speaker stated in John Hopkins University.

He emphasized the Constitutional changes and stated that the Constitutional reform was one of the main issues of the Parliamentary agenda.

Constitutional reform was one of the agenda issues of the Parliament, which we have successfully implemented in 2017.

According to the reform, we move to the Parliamentary Republic and according to the Constitutional changes, we enact the proportional electoral system. This is the dramatically important progress, which will prevent formation any autocracy in Georgia for a long term run.

The number of challenges and problems were related to the previous editions of the Constitutions, allowing the Governments forming the autocratic regime. The new edition prevents formation of autocracy.

No change for the Government to establish autocracy – not a single political force will have the opportunity to consolidate authority against the Parliamentary system and the proportional electoral system”.
