Most of us would probably agree that looking back is much easier than gazing into the future. Evaluating the past is extremely important but having a more or less unmistakably calculated vision of prospective hazards or opportunities should be even more significant. If on the eve of political upheaval of the beginning of those roaring nineties of the 20th century in the former USSR the Georgian political leadership of that time and the nation’s intellectual elite had had a clearer perspective of those devastating incipient developments, Georgia might have endured the end-of-soviet-era economic social and political “earthquakes” much easier and with minimized pains and losses.
A special group will work on the issue of the Board of Trustees of the Georgian Public Broadcaster (GPB). The group will try to solve the deadlock created around the GPB board after the verdict of the Constitutional Court. Majority member Eliso Chapidze claims that the court made a decision that would disturb the reform of the Public Broadcaster. Last year the Parliament amended the Law on Broadcasting, introducing a new rule for the formation of the Board of Trustees of GPB. The new rule envisaged pre-term termination of the authority of seven current members of the Board from January 2014. In December 2013 however, six members of the board filed a lawsuit with the Constitutional Court arguing that the termination of their authority was illegal and unconstitutional.
