Coalition for Euro-Atlantic Georgia demands suspension of the accelerated process of adoption of constitution The Coalition for Euro-Atlantic Georgia considers it appropriate to suspend the accelerated process of adoption of the constitution and to engage qualified experts working on the issues defense and security in the constitutional commission.

The NGOs of the coalition say that the draft constitution cannot provide effective institutional and legal frameworks for the crisis management, development of security policy, supervision of the policy with regard to the security architecture due to the serious deficiencies.

"The document does not explicitly set out the out the basic principles of civil and democratic control over the armed forces, law enforcement agencies and special services. The fundamental changes made to the defense and security architecture have not been discussed with local experts, strategic partners or international organizations at any stage”, say the NGOs.

According to them, vague and sometimes contradictory approaches in some of the articles of the constitution with regard to the national security issues, which are not in compliance with the democratic standards, are alarming.

The Coalition for the Euro-Atlantic Georgia includes 23 organizations which support Euro-Atlantic integration of Georgia.
