The parliament considered the applications of 51 MPs in connection with termination of their authority. The plenary session was attended by 90 MPs. The issue has not been backed.
“We have given a new chance to the opposition MPs to respect their voters. According to the recent social survey, 2/3 of their voters back they entrance to the parliament. Besides, we have also considered the position of our international partners who support establishment of constructive relations with the radical opposition,” Irakli Kobakhidze said.
The committee on procedure issues considered the issue and decided that termination of 51 mandates of the opposition MPs was expedient. The committee’s decision will be presented to the bureau. According to the parliament’s regulations, termination of the MP’s authority should be backed by 50 MPs at the plenary session.
