On May 23, President of the Republic of Abkhazia Raul Khadzhimba addressed the members of the People’s Assembly-Parliament of the Republic of Abkhazia.
Dear Members of Parliament!
On May 21, I have introduced for the consideration of the People’s Assembly the draft law on amending the Constitutional Law of the Republic of Abkhazia “On the elections of the President of the Republic of Abkhazia”.
In strict accordance with the Constitution of the Republic of Abkhazia, the current legislation and within the term of the President’s constitutional authority, the proposed draft law provides legal foundations for the rescheduling of the presidential elections from July 21 to August 25, 2019.
A decision about this proposal was adopted only to stabilise the socio-political situation in the state before the upcoming presidential elections.
In connection with this, I urge you, dear Members of Parliament, regardless of your political views and preferences, to support this draft law at the next meeting of the Parliament’s session.
