We made the balanced decision which in all likelihood will lead to an impartial and smooth functioning of the Supreme Court. Such a statement made a member of the parliamentary majority Irakli Kobakhidze while commenting on the approval of the judges of the Supreme Court.
“We had to make a decision considering the status quo. When one mentions competency criteria, this, naturally, is a relative concept. Maybe in Germany, they have different standards, and I know what standards they have there.
Georgia may have different standards, different from other countries, due to different objective reasons. I have already said that the qualification criteria of the majority of the presented candidates have not been ideal, but, all things considered, we made a balanced decision”, - said Kobakhidze.
