Georgia Adopts New Constitution

Georgia’s parliament adopted a new Constitution pursuant to which many powers are being transferred from the office of the President to that of the Prime Minister. The Constitution will enter into force in stages from 2010 to 2013. Critics say this is a trick by President Mikheil Saakashvili to allow him to stay in power as the Prime Minister after the expiration of his presidential term in 2013.
