Consideration of the MPs' claim postponed

The Constitutional Court postponed the hearing of the lawsuit of Zura-Girchi Japaridze, Tamar Kordzaia, and Elene Khoshtaria, which was based on Tamar Kordzaia's appeal. Kordzaia asked the Constitutional Court to postpone the hearing for two weeks due to family problems.

Opposition leaders are appealing to the court about the non-termination of the parliamentary mandates.

Eight judges out of nine agreed to accept the case, while one judge, Eva Gotsiridze, opposed it.

"The article of the Constitution of Georgia, in relation to which there is a request to appeal against, does not include such atypical cases as boycott; therefore, the court should not take this case into proceedings. The constitution does not regulate issues like revolution, boycott, and so on," Eva Gotsiridze explained the reason for the refusal.

The trial will be held in 2 weeks with an oral hearing and remotely.
