Overview

The Georgian Constitution was adopted in 1995 and has been amended several times. Important changes took place in 2004 and 2010. As a result, the institution of the prime minister was introduced, the public prosecutor’s office was subordinated to the executive power (Ministry of Justice) and, furthermore, the executive branch of government, and particularly the president, were strengthened.

After the presidential elections in November 2013, other equally important constitutional amendments entered into force. In consequence, the transition to a parliamentary system of government was initiated. After parliamentary elections in 2012, Georgia’s new government placed the issue of a comprehensive constitutional reform on its agenda.
