In addition, the European Union and UNDP will help the Parliament to complete the ongoing institutional reform, as well as revise the Parliament’s Rules of Procedures and align them with the latest constitutional amendments.
With the budget of € 1.6 million the project is co-funded by the European Union and the Parliament of Georgia, and will be implemented by the United Nations Development Programme.
The project builds on the UNDP’s decade long assistance to the Parliament in the main areas of its constitutional responsibility.
