As a part of the campaign “Constitution Belongs to Everyone”, the President of Georgia Giorgi Margvelashvili, together with the members of the Administration of the President and the leaders of various political parties, has held a meeting at the Center for Civic Engagement in Telavi. 

“We exchange views on how to build a united, strong state, how to improve self-governance, and how to get involved in the country’s everyday life. It is important that we collectively write the Constitution and through this way respect each other’s’ diverse opinions. The political process of forming the fundamental law, in which the entire population is involved, is crucial.

We would like to open up this discussion. We would like to increase public involvement, share viewpoints, and argue about these issues, instead of making decisions behind closed doors, as it has happened multiple times before.

If we all start to discuss these issues, we will achieve the point, which will unite and strengthen us as a nation. My desire is directed toward having strong political parties in the legislative branch”, - stated the President.

As a part of the campaign, the President plans to visit all regions of Georgia. For the first stage the meetings will be held with the students and the scientific community.

The Presidential campaign aims to increase public participation in the Constitutional amendment process before its final approval.
