📍 The law on de-oligarchization, as well as the 12 points of the European Commission, are invented in order to change the government in Georgia. It is on this issue that the EU candidate status for Georgia is tied
📍 Georgia will receive the status of a candidate for the European Union, and this is primarily in the interests of Europe.
📍 However, even after receiving the candidate status, Georgia will face various demands in the form of implementation of recommendations and this will continue until the government in Georgia changes.
🔷 The chairman of the parliamentary political group “European Socialists” Fridon Injia, during his speech at the plenary session of the parliament in the “format of political debate”, evaluated the conclusion of the Venice Commission regarding the law “on de-oligarchization”.
🔷 The chairman of the political group emphasized that a similar law has not been adopted in any democratic country, neither in Europe, nor in America, nor in Asian countries, where even the initiation of this law would cause a smile.
🔷 “Consequently, the demand for the adoption of this law is specially invented in order for the existing government to hand over the power to the opposition. From the very first day, we declared that we would not support the adoption of this law.
🔷 What does the Venice Commission write in its conclusion: the judicial system should be changed, reform should be carried out (the reform has been ongoing for 30 years, including in the Council of Justice); In the conclusion, we also read the request to change the tax legislation, and finally the conclusion ends with the fact that there should be rule of law in the country.” – noted Fridon Injia.
🔷 The deputy drew attention to the fact that he, as the chairman of the “European Socialists” political group, has repeatedly made a statement from the legislative tribune that the 12-point request of the European Commission is invented and in the case of the rule of law in the state, there is no need to adopt similar recommendations or different laws. Therefore, the MP does not see anything special in this part of the conclusion of the Venice Commission.
🔷 “We have always explained that in order to establish order in the country, first of all, there must be rule of law.” – added the deputy.
🔷 The chairman of the political group believes that the law “On Deoligarchization” was directed against Bidzina Ivanishvili from the beginning, so that somehow, with some mechanism, it would be possible to punish her.
🔷 “Due to the fact that this law could not satisfy and could not create the mechanism that would somehow be directed against Ivanishvili, that would be included in the framework of the law, today it turned out that the law on “deoligarchization” does not fulfill the requirements of our friends from “Europe”. Then they decided that the law on “deoligarchization” is not acceptable. – said Fridon Injia.
🔷 As for getting the candidate status for Georgia, the deputy is sure that Georgia will get the status and it is primarily in the interests of Europe.
🔷 “I think that they will give Georgia the status of a candidate for the European Union, and this is more in their interest. For Georgia, it is important that the country continues to do its work, be it economic transformations or improvement of the relevant legal framework that ensures the economic progress of the country, we need it. As for the European Union and other international structures, this is a way, a mechanism for Georgia’s integration. For our country to be within the framework, within the borders, the place it occupied 50 years ago”. – noted Fridon Injia.
🔷 The chairman of the political group is sure that even after receiving the candidate status, Georgia will still face various demands in the form of implementation of recommendations and this will continue until the government in Georgia changes.
