Saakashvili has violated the Constitution… IMPEACH HIM!

One of Georgias most experienced constitutional experts, Vakhtang Khmaladze, says Saakashvili violated the constitution in several ways when he announced on TV Saturday evening that he had already appointed Ivane (Vano) Merabishvili as prime minister, and former prime minister Nika Gilauri as chair of a government investment fund.

The procedure for how to appoint a new prime minister, defined by the constitution, is that when a prime minister is no longer able to fulfill his duties, the president should hold consultations with factions in parliament and on grounds of these consultations he should present a new candidate for prime minister to parliament.

"The problem is that consultations werent held and this violated constitutions direct requirement. If the president issued an act to appoint Merabishvili as Prime Minister, this will be the second violation of the constitution, Khmaladze explains, adding that a decision made by violating the constitution cannot be considered legal since one the most important principles of law is not followed under these procedures. In this case, constitutional procedures were violated."

It is understandable that no one from the government wants to comment on this issue.
