Parliament to elect state inspector today

A state inspector will be elected at the Parliament’s plenary sitting today. MPs will vote for two candidates - Londa Toloraia and Valeri Lomuashvili.

The majority of the committee members supported Londa Toloraia, who currently serves as head of the Human Rights Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

A state inspector will be elected for a term of 6 years. The State Institute's Office is an independent investigative mechanism tasked with investigating the crimes committed by law enforcers. The State Institute's Office will be launched from July 1 under the Personal Data Protection Inspector's Office.
