Georgia Government
 
 
 

General

Despite considerable progress made since the Rose revolution Georgia is still not a full-fledged democracy. Political system remains in the process of transition, with frequent adjustments to the balance of power between the President and Parliament, and proposals ranging from transforming the country into parliamentary republic to re-establishing the monarchy.

The head of state is the President, who is elected for a term of five years. His constitutional successor is the Chairman of the Parliament. The president appoints a Prime Minister, who serves as the head of government. Notably, the ministers of defence and interior are not members of the Cabinet and are subordinated directly to the President of Georgia.

The Parliament of Georgia (Sak'art'velos Parlamenti), also known as the Umaghlesi Sabcho (Supreme Council), has 235 members, elected for a four year term – 150 seats by proportional representation, 75 in single-seat constituencies and 10 given to the representatives of the displaced persons from the separatist region of Abkhazia. According to the constitutional amendments passed in 2003, the parliament will consist of only 150 members elected with the proportional representation system and will be fully refurbished.

Georgia has a Supreme Court, with judges elected by the Parliament on the president's recommendation, and a Constitutional Court.
