“Unfortunately, there is a clear and direct call from certain political groups, which is also shared by the representative of the Public Defender, to agree to such type of changes that have no analogues at the international level, that is, they offer us some conclusions that are neither in accordance with international standards nor with the Venice Commission or other high international Not endorsed by reputable institutions. We do not need to share the experience of countries with a backward legal culture, nor do we have time for such efforts to conduct experiments on whether a particular issue will be justified or not. In the Supreme Council of Justice, we are being offered a model where the vote of three people outweighs the vote of twelve people. How can the voice of three people be superior to the voice of 12? To what extent can politics be included in the Supreme Council of Justice when the members elected by the Parliament will have the ability to block specific decisions, including political ones? Despite such conflicting positions, our task is to discuss each issue in detail, to leave space for all issues, so that if there is any issue on which it is possible to converge positions. If we cannot reconcile the positions, it will be public. Further, we are ready for public debate and discussion in open committee meetings. Neither the legal aid service nor the representatives of the business association expressed the opinion that the principle of twice two-thirds in the Supreme Council of Justice is extremely important. The representatives of the professional circles agree that speedy justice, and making a specific decision within the appropriate time frame is a challenge. It is a fact that the vision of professional society is focused on the interests of society. “Unfortunately, we do not have the same situation as the representatives of political groups,” the head of the working group said that the vision of the professional society is focused on the interests of society. “Unfortunately, we do not have the same situation as the representatives of political groups,” the head of the working group said that the vision of the professional society is focused on the interests of society. “Unfortunately, we do not have the same situation as the representatives of political groups,” the head of the working group said.

According to Anri Okhanashvili, the next meeting of the judicial reform working group will be held in the near future.
