A constitutional amendment envisaging relocating the next Parliament, to be elected in 2012, from capital Tbilisi to the country’s second largest city of Kutaisi was passed with its third and final reading on July 1.

In September 2009 the Parliament passed constitutional amendment envisaging splitting of working venue of next Parliament to be elected in 2012 between Tbilisi and Kutaisi, located over 200 kilometers away from the capital. According to those amendments, the parliamentary sittings should be held in Kutaisi, while other activities, including parliamentary committee hearings should be held in the current parliamentary chamber in Tbilisi.

But with the most recent amendment the next Parliament will fully be located in Kutaisi.
