Usupashvili Signs Judicial Council Bill into Law
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 20 May.'13 / 20:38

Parliamentary Chairman, Davit Usupashvili, signed package of bills, envisaging reform of High Council of Justice (HCoJ), into law on Monday after the Parliament overturned presidential veto on May 1.

The amendments were published on the state online registry of legal acts, Sakanonmdeblo Matsne, on Monday and will go into effect from May 21.

Usupashvili, who is the second highest ranking official in the country, became eligible to sign the bills into law after President Saakashvili again refused to do it after his veto was overridden by the Parliament.

HCoJ, the body overseeing judicial system, will have to be composed under the new rules within one month.
