“The Parliament, after the Bureau, is to address the President of Georgia for convocation of the extraordinary session within the week”, - the Speaker, Irakli Kobakhidze stated.
May 8 plenary agenda includes: the draft organic law on Labor Code with the III reading; and the draft organic law on State Inspection Service envisaging May 12 – St. Andrew Day and the Day of Hope (Appurtenance of Georgia to the Holy Virgin) – the day-off.
The Speaker responded to the opposition MP and elucidated the reason for the extraordinary convocation: “Last week, we failed to pass the draft with the III reading as it was not submitted for the accelerated consideration. Last week, we adopted it with the III reading and it appeared technically impossible to resume with the III reading and our will was not to convene the extraordinary session within the week. May 12 is the next Sunday and hence, the only solution was to convene the session this week”.
The Bureau assigned the Committees on the new legislative initiatives and discussed the organizational issues.
