👉 The supervisory function of the parliament is at the level of the friendly court of communists – Fridon Injia
🔹 “The issue of implementing parliamentary supervision and control is one of the 12 recommendations developed by the European Commission, one of the most important for Georgia to be a truly parliamentary republic, the government is really a doer, and the parliament is a supervisor. We have made some progress in this matter, but not much,” said the chairman of the political group “European Socialists” Fridon Injia at the meeting of the Committee on Procedural Issues and Rules, where the results of the work of the working group on parliamentary control issues were discussed.
🔹 According to him, if the members of the Cabinet of Ministers do not feel that avoiding and not answering the question asked by the MP can be punished, then this activity will not have an effect.
🔹”Our mechanisms are now at the level of the friendly court of communists. They would tell the person, behave well, and he would leave. If the parliament does not have the strong power to make the government feel the control of the parliament elected by the people, it will not work. Question and answer, the minister came, left, gave an answer, if he avoided, nothing happens. If the official’s inaction or action in the second or third case is not punishable, then the supervisory function of the parliament will not become effective,” said Fridon Injia.
