One Article of Freedom Charter Might Go In Force Before Elections

One of the articles of the Freedom Charter might in force before elections. According to MP Gia Tortladze, a special state commission shall be set up within the MIA in accordance to the law and Central Election Commission shall send party lists of election subjects.

“We had negotiations about one month ago; they intend to set up a commission. As a rule, by the time submission of lists is finished the Commission should already exist. The CEC shall send lists to the Commission. If they find any people, like spies or high-ranking official of the communist party on the party lists, the CEC is entitled to inform voters about it,” Tortladze told Interpresnews.

Parliament of Georgia adopted the Freedom Charter in May of 2011 with the initiative of MP Tortladze. According to the Charter, the purpose of the law is to eradicate all crimes against statehood, terrorism and state security, to reinforce national security of the country, to carry out preventive measures against soviet and fascist ideology; eradication of soviet and fascist symbols, temples, monuments, etc as well as to block sources disseminating soviet and fascist ideology and propaganda. Freedom Charter does not prohibit former high-ranking officials of the communist party in the elections but obliges the election administration to publish information about similar people.
