President has granted Georgian Dream another opportunity to prevent the passage of this law - Giorgi Mskhiladze

The President has granted Georgian Dream [GD] another opportunity to prevent the passage of this law and to uphold the presidential veto. Such a statement made today the President’s Parliamentary Secretary.

“The polarization and controversy sparked by this Russian law in our country are well-known. The President has given the ruling GD party a further chance to prevent the adoption of this law and to uphold the presidential veto. It is up to the GD to decide on when and how to override the veto.

The President did not block anything. At the 2nd reading, the she urged the Parliament to thoroughly discuss the law, to review it, and to consider it in light of the calls from our international partners. Unfortunately, the GD did not take into account. Thus, it is unclear why the president would be accused of obstructing dialogue. The notes were not included in the bill because this law, being of Russian origin, is entirely unacceptable. It was the ruling party to block negotiations on the law”, - said Giorgi Mskhiladze.
