​Giorgi Abashishvili: Draft Law Prepared by the Parliament Is Insidious

Giorgi Abashishvili, Head of President Margvelashvili’s Administration has assessed the amendments to the law on “Public Service” as dishonest, insidious, unambiguously discriminatory, and anti-constitutional. According to the draft law, employees of the Presidential Administration will no longer be civil servants, but will work under the administrative contract. Giorgi Abashishvili said that even if we assure that “there is a grain of truth in this decision, then it should be equally applied to the Parliament of Georgia and the Administration of the Government of Georgia. “
"Among the countless attempts, this is another attack against the President's Institute. I would like to advise the authorities, still holding the constitutional majority, to abolish the President’s Institute, instead of these miserable attempts; let’s say that we no longer choose the president and after so much suffering, they will finally have some rest.
Aside the legal absurdity of these amendments, I would like to say this bluntly that this is an insidious, cowardly decision, harming those professionals, who work in this building. But I understand that they will find it hard to hold a professional conversation with highly-qualified professionals, such as the employees of the Presidential Administration.
This decision is unambiguously discriminatory, and anti-constitutional. Even if there is a grain of truth in this decision, then it should be equally applied to the Parliament of Georgia and the Administration of the Government of Georgia.
I would like to address the so-called authors of this absurdity and tell them that it would have been better if they had held a ten-minute consultation with freshmen students of Law before initiating this absurdity. These young people would have convinced them of own absurdity,” Giorgi Abashishvili said.
