Goka Gabashvili –Any Conclusion of the Venice Commission Cannot Put an End to the Ongoing Debates in the Parliament of Georgia

A member of the parliamentary majority Goka Gabashvili cannot understand why a conclusion of the Venice Commission shall put an end to the ongoing debates in the parliament of Georgia.

Gabashvili stated about it at the plenary session of the parliament on October 1 when the parliament was discussing the draft amendments to the constitution. Gabashvili replied to the MP Nika Laliashvili from the Christian-Democrat Movement, who had read the critic of the Venice Commission about the non-confidence that might be declared by the parliament towards the government. Based on the conclusion of the Venice Commission, Laliashvili requested to stop debates on this issue.

Goka Gabashvili said that conclusions of the Venice Commission cannot put an end to the ongoing debates in the parliament of Georgia because Georgia is a sovereign country and takes decisions independently.

“Only Georgian people and the parliament of Georgia can put an end to it,” said Gabashvili and assessed the constructive vote of non-confidence envisaged in the draft-constitution as very flexible.

Gabashvili recalled the government of Italy which is very close to Georgia with its political temperament and said that the government in Italy was changed within 12 months only because one person permanently changed fractions.

“Georgia cannot allow similar fact. When we discuss the non-confidence, it should rely on the conceptual issues instead moving from one to another fraction,” said Gabashvili.

The parliamentary opposition and the Venice Commission think that the procedures of declaring the non-confidence towards the government by the parliament is so delayed that it might cause political crisis.
