TBISILI, July 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Georgia’s parliament will ratify the Association Agreement with the EU on July 18, the parliament’s chairman said.
“Under the Georgian Constitution, I’ll address President Georgy Margvelashvili these days to convene an extraordinary session,” David Usupashvili told a joint news briefing with Poland’s Senate Marshall Bogdan Borusewicz on Wednesday.
The Georgian parliament is in recess. The spring session ended at the end of June. Under the Constitution, the president has the right to convene an extraordinary session for debating and approving major draft laws and agreements.
For his part, Borusewicz said, “Poland will be one of the EU first countries that will ratify the document.”
Georgia signed the Association Agreement with the EU in Brussels on June 27. After the Georgian parliament, the European Parliament and the parliaments of 28 EU countries ratify the deal, it will come into effect. Romania was the first country that ratified the agreement on July 2.
