Controversy between Giorgi Margvelashvili and the governmental team - Prime Minister`s and President`s Administration blame each other for violating the constitution

Parliamentary Secretary of the President responds to the government"s statement and accuses the Prime Minister of violating constitutional norms.

Natsvlishvili calls  incompetent the statement of the Prime Minister"s parliamentary secretary according to which the Prime Minister will convene Cabinet meeting only in case of personal statement of the President.

"The answer that we have just heard is so incompetent in terms of the legal
norms that I can not comment on that.

The fact that the President has appealed to the Prime Minister has been seen by the whole of Georgia. Unfortunately, in response to this address, we see the Government"s attempt to ignore the constitution and in this very difficult situation in which the country is to stay aside from the responsibility of running the country by constitutional authorities, based on constitutional formats and the principle of legitimacy that is very sad and very damaging to the country, "said Anna Natsvlishvili.

The President addressed the Prime Minister at the special briefing yesterday with the proposal to convene the Government`s Special Meeting. According to Giorgi Margvelashvili, there is a political crisis in the country that the governing team should discuss and answer the questions raised in the society.

The Prime Minister of Georgia responded to the President"s address, saying that the government continues to work in the usual regime and does not see the necessity to convene a special session.

At the end of the day, the parliamentary secretary of the prime minister made an explanation that the address was sent to the administration of the government by the presidential secretary of the parliament Ana Natsvlishvili, which is not in accordance with the rule established by the legislation.

According to Natia Mikeladze, the President should personally address the Prime Minister with an official letter requesting to convene the government session.
