The Parliament of Georgia has registered a legislative initiative of MPs Eka Beselia and Levan Gogichaishvili which provides for making amendments to the Law of Georgia on Culture and to the Civil Procedure Code of Georgia.
On 12 April Transparency International Georgia presented the "Monitoring Report of the 2017 Action Plan for Open Parliament" within the framework of the project "Strengthening Parliament's Accountability and Transparency of Its Activities".
It has come to our knowledge that the Parliament of Georgia may follow the initiative proposed by the Ministry of Justice to amend the text of the new Constitution and lower the constitutional standard of access to public information.
On 29 September of the current year, the government submitted a draft law on “Remuneration in Public Institutions” to the Parliament of Georgia.
Amending the Constitution and creating or abolishing local self-government entities are the two issues where the Constitution of Georgia attributes special importance to the obligatory nature of the engagement of the population in the decision-making process.
