Do you support restricting the president’s powers?

Thursday, January 10
“I do not think that the presidents rights’ to be restricted. I consider that there are various issues in the country which should be ruled and solved by the President only.”
Nino, Teacher, 24

“Well, I suppose that the president’s power should be restricted and especially President Saakashvili’s power. He should not have the right to impose unrest inside the country. He should not be given the right to make individual decisions.”
Nana, Student, 21

“It depends what is the background of the restrictions. Somehow I agree with this restriction, but with the change of government to change the constitution is not acceptable for me, and in this case mostly the population suffers.”
Tiko, 22, social agent

“Saakashvili with his changes in the constitution cut the branch on which he was sitting, when he increased the rights of the Prime Minister and government.”
Ineza, 29, teacher

“Well I think it is necessary to somehow restrict the president’s rights, if we want to finally establish democracy in this country, we should make sure that power is balanced between the president and the parliament.”
Saba, lawyer 25.

“I don’t want to see any more constitutional changes. Every time a new government comes into power the constitution gets changed according to the government’s interests, which is wrong”
Nino, manager, 37
