Parliament’s Speaker- Parliament was quite weak and ineffective, though the situation is rapidly improving The Parliament was quite weak and ineffective under the previous government but the situation is rapidly improving,- Chairman of Parliament Irakli Kobakhidze said in his speech at the Seminar “Parliamentary Oversight and the Role of the Opposition”.
“Ongoing Constitutional reform constitutes the logical outcome of strict democratization recently undertaken by Georgian Dream since coming to authority in 2012. Parliamentary democracy required restructuring of the Governmental institutions and their interaction. It served the major reason for initiation of the Constitutional reform 2 years ago, and we have successfully accomplished this process this year. Enhancement of the Parliament is the center of this wide political reform. Parliament of Georgia was the cradle of Georgian democracy where political pluralism and democratic competition always facilitated our nation to maintain and enhance our national independence and sovereignty, to develop democratic practice”,- the Speaker said.

Irakli Kobakhidze said that the Parliament was quite weak and ineffective under the previous government but the situation is rapidly improving.
“We have developed various initiatives aiming at protection of Georgian democracy and prevention of authoritative practice. The new Constitution ensures effective and adequate retention and balance system between the legislative and executive authorities. Through the reform of the Rules of Procedure, we ensure accountability of the Cabinet of Ministers and the Governmental agencies to the Parliament not only in theory but in practice as well. It is important that rights and privileges of the opposition are being extended. 1/3 of the Parliamentary list solely will be entitled to set up the Fact Finding Commission and the number of the opposition members in the Commission will be no less than the half. The previous edition of the Constitution this right was granted to the Majority solely”.

Yet another reform on Rules of Procedure envisages additional guarantees for enhancement of the Parliamentary oversight. Other than the legislative changes, the Parliament enhances its capacity in all directions.
“Under the preceding Constitution, it was actually impossible for the Parliament to express its will and discontent about the Government. In this regards, much has been changed. The vote of non-confidence and interpellation procedures are being simplified. The Prime Minister shall on annual basis report to the Parliament. The Government members and other officials are required to attend the Committee sittings, to answer the questions and submit the information about their activities. This request may be lodged not only by the Majority but by the Minority as well. Each Minister will be responsible to appeal to the Parliament within the Ministers’ Hour format. Other than these normative changes, the Parliament is through the significant transformation in all the aspects, including capacity building through trainings for the Staff and material resources”.
The Speaker emphasized importance of support by international society and donors and thanked them for their efforts.
