The Committee held the working meeting to discuss the mandatory military service reform with the law-enforcement agencies specifying the main directions and enforcement mechanisms.
The working group initiator, the Chair of the Committee, Irakli Sesiashvili noted that certain results require complex approach and joint efforts.
The Prime Minister is interested in the reform as well. As to the reform, it is necessary for security of the country, thus it is important to improve the conscription system as every conscript is the future reservist.
The Committee heard the representatives of the Defense and Interior Ministries, as well as State Security Service, Special Protection Service and Penitentiary Department speaking about mandatory military service regime and procedures in respective agencies.
“We all agree that the military service needs to be reformed. In this term, the Defense Ministry has made the first step and now all conscripts pass the military training. Their social conditions are improved and now they enjoy the leisure time. Mandatory Military Service is the complex issue as the conscripts have to pass this period in various agencies. During the working process, we will find out the problems of these agencies. We will agree on common principles to further define the type of the reform”, - I. Sesiashvili stated.
The meeting was attended by the Deputy Ministers of Education and of Regional Development. The meetings on hereof issue will be on intermittent basis held in the law enforcement ministries.
